Drive Thru COVID-19 Testing Clinic

Starting Monday, April 6, we initiated a drive thru testing clinic. By appointment only, the clinic will run Monday thru Friday from 12pm to 4pm. To meet the criteria for COVID-19 testing, an individual must:

  • show symptoms (fever, new cough, trouble breathing, new aches and pains, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea) or
  • traveled to the North Slope within the past 7 days or
  • been in contact with a known confirmed case of COVID-19

If anyone matches these descriptions please call the hotline at SSMH COVID-19 Hotline # 833.852.4622.
When calling this number you will speak to a nurse who will go over a questionnaire with you and if you meet the criteria, they will get your contact information and schedule you an appointment. Please bring a form of identification with you. To maintain the safety of all patients and staff we are not able to serve people who do not have an appointment.
The drive thru clinic will take place behind the hospital in the parking spaces by the emergency department. We will have signs indicating the location. Remember test results can take anywhere between 3-6 days to process. We kindly ask anyone who receives the test to please self-isolate at home awaiting results, and if symptoms worsen don’t hesitate and come straight to the Emergency Room.
