Fort Smith, June 3, 2020 — Over the last month and especially over the last two weeks, Fort Smith has seen a significant decrease in the number of patients requiring COVID-19 testing at the COVID-19 offsite screening clinic.
In response, the Fort Smith COVID-19 Offsite Screening Clinic is no longer offering walk-in services, and will instead offer COVID-19 screening by appointment only, starting June Wednesday 3nd, 2020.
If members of the public require testing, they can call 867-621-2233 or 867-872-0562 to schedule an appointment. This phone line is monitored by a Registered Nurse, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be used to book COVID-19 screening appointments. Residents can also call the number if they have health related COVID-19 questions or concerns. For general COVID-19 information, residents can call the 811 COVID-19 support line.
If there were to be a sudden increased demand for COVID-19 testing, the Fort Smith Covid-19 Offsite Screening Clinic will re-evaluate and adjust services levels in response.
Primary Care services continue to be available, and we encourage residents to call ahead to coordinate their appointment and ask about new virtual care options.
