Lackland Air Force Base, Tex. --

In order to sustain COVID-19 testing capability, San Antonio Military Health System will no longer test asymptomatic personnel at its drive-thru screening and testing sites. Testing for symptomatic active duty and military beneficiaries will continue to be conducted. We are continually assessing this evolving situation and will be sure to pass on any updates/changes.

As a reminder, the COVID-19 drive-thru screening and testing hours of operation are as follows:

- JBSA-Lackland's site, located on the ground floor of the parking garage (follow the blue cones on Wilford Hall Loop), is open Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon, closed on Sunday.

- JBSA-Randolph’s site, located behind the Randolph Clinic, is open Monday through Friday, 0800-1600, closed Saturday and Sunday.

-- BAMC's site, located in the first floor parking garage, is open Sunday to Friday from 8 a.m. to noon, and closed on Saturday.

If you are seeking general information about COVID-19 or would like to determine if you need to be screened or tested, please call the SAMHS COVID-19 Nurse Info Line at 210-581-2266 Option 6, weekdays from 0700-1700. Please note: The Info Line is for information only. If you have COVID-19 related symptoms, call CAMO at 210-916-9900 to schedule a virtual appointment with your PCM.  After hours, beneficiaries should call the MHS Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273), Option 1.

As a reminder, if you are feeling sick or having any symptoms, please put safety first for yourself and those around you. Please stay home and call before coming in to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Please continue to do your part to slow the spread of this virus: wear a face covering, wash your hands regularly and socially distance from others, both at work and in your community. That is the best way to preserve the health of our patients and staff.

SAMHS will continue to take proactive steps, working alongside its military and community partners, to both contain the spread and mitigate the impact of the virus.
