JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas --
To better meet our patients' needs, the San Antonio Military Health System is adding additional hours to its COVID-19 screening and testing operations this weekend.
The 59th Medical Wing's drive-thru screening and testing site is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the addition of Saturday, 27 June from 8 a.m. to noon. The location is adjacent to the Luke Gate on JBSA-Lackland.
BAMC's drive-thru screening and testing site is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to noon with the addition of Sunday, 28 June from 8 a.m. to noon. The location is in the first floor, parking garage.
The COVID-19 drive-thru process will offer an initial screening, and if testing criteria is met, swab collections will be performed on site.
This service is intended to screen beneficiaries with COVID-19 symptoms who may need testing in order to reduce the health risk to our families and our communities. While supervisors can direct personnel to report for screening, decisions to test will be made by medical professionals at the screening and testing site. Please be advised that not everyone who is screened will be tested.
