ST. LEO’S CHURCH HOSTS COVID-19 COMMUNITY DRIVE THRU-TESTING EVENT CLINICALLY PERFORMED BY WELLCARE

         JANUARY 30th, 2021

Starting at 9am FOR THOSE WITH OR WITHOUT SYMPTOMS

Protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community by getting tested for COVID-19. You could have COVID-19 and not even know it. It's quick and easy.

WellCare is being hosted by St. Leo’s Church (324 Market Street, Elmwood Park, NJ 07407) to provide COVID-19 testing. Our drive-thru testing site is designed to provide a high level of safety for testing participants, the community and staff.

We will be offering initial diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2, commonly referred to as Coronavirus (COVID-19). Tests will utilize the collection of an, FDA approved nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimen. Diagnostic testing is performed by FDA approved, Real Time Polymerise Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) platform.

What to expect when arriving at the testing site:

  • Test sites will be arranged in a way that all participants will REMAIN IN THEIR VEHICLES AT ALL TIMES, to ensure social distancing and safety for all parties involved.
  • Participants will arrive for their scheduled appointment (on-line scheduling recommended and is available at https://wellcaretccm.com/st-leos-covid-19-testing-01-30-21) remaining in their vehicles with their masks on and state issued photo ID and all medical insurance cards ready for collection until they are instructed to pull into the first testing area.
  • In the first testing area, participants state issued ID and all medical insurance cards will be collected for recording. Once in the test area, they will then be asked a series of medical questions and their temperature will be taken and recorded.
  • A staff member will then instruct the participants to move their vehicle forward toward the second testing area where participants will have their ID and insurance cards returned to them and the nasal swab specimen will be collected. Following collection of the specimen, participants will be instructed to exit the test site.
  • The entire process, from the entrance to the first testing area to exiting of the final testing area, will take approximately 5-10 minutes. The laboratory will call the number given with your result and a hard copy will be mailed to the address given.

What you need to bring

  • All participants will need to be wearing a mask or cloth covering their mouth and nose at all times while at the test location.
  • All participants will need to have their original state issued photo ID and all medical insurance cards (copies will not be accepted).
  • With medical insurance there is no cost to you for participating in the COVID-19 testing event. We will only perform diagnostic medical services covered by your medical insurance. You will receive a statement from your insurance company - an explanation of Benefits (EOB) - which will itemize the services received, but it is not a bill. Those with-out insurance please provide a Social Security card and/or a driver’s license.

Please note that all participants are required to arrive at the test location in a vehicle and wearing a mask, as this is a drive-through test. Bring your state-issued identification and all medical insurance cards.

The process from start to finish should only take approximately 10 minutes.

 WellCare will provide you detailed result delivery information at the testing site.
