March 23, 2020 - Scenes of a drive-through COVID-19 test collection and pre-screening for military veterans at the parking lot of the John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Veterans referred for testing by their provider are swabbed without having to get out of their vehicle, while other veterans are pre-screened in a covered location outside of a vehicle. Most test results currently take about a week.
John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital also provided curb-side pharmaceutical pick-up site for Veterans with urgent prescription needs.
The John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital is part of the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, which consists of two main VA medical centers and eight rural Community Based Outpatient Clinics.
