Free COVID-19 testing will be offered to the public at two mobile sites in Clarendon County and one in Sumter County in the next week.

MUSC Health, in partnership with the state Legislature, has been setting up mobile screening and collection sites in rural and underserved areas of the state, communities that experience disparities in access to COVID-19 screening, testing, prevention and treatment, a situation being experienced statewide and nationally.

Tents will be set up outside to collect respiratory samples from both walk-up and drive-through patients.

Prescreening or an appointment is not required. It is free to get tested, but patients are asked to bring a photo ID and an insurance card if they have one. Insurance is not required to be seen, but the CARES Act requires MUSC to bill insurance providers if patients have insurance.

Patients will be contacted within seven to 10 days with test results. Email or call (843) 985-8888 with questions.
