Local Health & Community Updates
Update from Prisma Health
Prisma Health has received calls from a number of employers interested in screening employees for COVID-19. The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) has published some helpful advice for those seeking testing in the FAQs located on its website.
If you are concerned that you, your family, or one of your employees might have COVID-19, you’re encouraged to call your primary care physician or participate in a free (with payment code COVID19) Prisma Health Virtual Visit. Both can help determine next steps for individuals who display symptoms of COVID-19.
If your provider or Virtual Visit determines that COVID-19 testing is appropriate for you, Prisma Health has established drive-through testing options at Greenville Memorial Hospital in the Upstate and Richland Hospital in the Midlands. Patients must have an electronic order for the COVID-19 test from a Prisma Health provider or from a Prisma Health Virtual Visit provider.
