Baptist Health, in response to Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s two-day campaign for COVID-19 testing, is opening testing sites throughout Arkansas.

The Arkansas Department of Health is advising any resident with symptoms like fever, cough or shortness of breath to get tested. Those wishing to be tested should call their health care provider first, and follow their guidance.

Baptist Health will have testing available (while supplies last) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25, in the following cities:

Arkadelphia: 10 Montgomery Drive, parking lot of Baptist Health Family Clinic-Caddo Valley.

Conway: 625 United Drive, behind Baptist Health-Conway

Fort Smith: 7200 South Zero St., Ben Geren Park.

For questions about testing sites set up by Baptist Health, please call the 24/7 COVID-19 information hot- line at 1-888-BAPTIST. The hotline is staffed by nurses to help residents better understand their conditions and receive direction on next steps for care should they be concerned about exposure to COVID-19.
