Prisma Health will be adding two new testing sites this week, one on Tuesday, June 30th and the other on Thursday, July 2nd.

The community testing, done in partnership with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and state agencies, will reach populations who may not otherwise have access to traditional testing or online virtual visits. Walk-up testing is also offered.

Testing is a priority for Prisma Health, especially providing access to communities that need it the most.

Prisma Health and its partners will offer community screenings for COVID-19 at the following locations this week:

Upstate Locations:

  • Tuesday, June 30th, 8 a.m. – noon: East End Elementary School, 505 E. Second Ave., Easley
  • Thursday, July 2nd, 8 a.m. – noon: Brook Glenn Elementary School, 2003 E. Lee Rd., Taylors

  • Thursday, July 2nd 8a.m. – noon: Kershaw County Schools Administrative Offices, 2029 W. Debalb St., Camden
