Myrtue Medical Center's COVID-19 Testing

As we continue to see COVID-19 cases on the rise nationally, the testing supplies are also impacted and affected. Currently, there is a nationwide shortage in rapid COVID-19 tests (results are provided within an hour). This shortage influences the availability of rapid COVID-19 test for our facility. Therefore, Myrtue is saving the rapid COVID-19 tests for those who have severe presenting symptoms and illness or possible hospitalization.
