Covington County Hospital opened two new clinics on Monday, August 3, both featuring a drive-thru Covid-19 testing option. One clinic, Express Care Taylorsville, is located in Smith County and the other, Express Care Sumrall, is in Lamar County.
“We recognized a need in both of these communities for another healthcare option,” said Santana Fulcher, clinic director for Covington County Hospital. “The success of our Covid-19 drive-thru testing option in Collins also highlighted the need for increased testing options in our neighboring communities.”
Walk-ins are welcome at both clinics and strict safety protocols are in place to keep visitors to the clinic separate from those being tested in the drive-thru.
Anna Seals, FNP, will be the Taylorsville provider with Dr. Word Johnston serving as the collaborating physician. Sarah Clark, FNP, will be the Sumrall provider with Dr. Harpreet Sood serving as the collaborating physician.
The Taylorsville clinic is located at 105 Eaton Street and the Sumrall clinic is located at 1039 Highway 42, next door to Fox’s Pizza. Each clinic and drive-thru will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
