If you're in the Beaufort area and need COVID-19 testing, Beaufort Memorial has two sites offering free tests. Beaufort Memorial Hospital is hosting two COVID testing events July 15 and July 29th.
All testing is on a first-come, first-served basis. A physician’s order is not required. BMH staff will notify patients about their results within 48 hours after DHEC delivers them. Participants should expect to receive results within 5 to 7 days after test collection.
The BMH Infection Prevention team will call anyone who tests positive and provide detailed instructions for self-isolation, self-care and home disinfection. Those who test negative will receive a text notification or phone call.
Participants are encouraged to complete and print two copies of the COVID-19 testing form available on the Beaufort Memorial website:https://www.bmhsc.org/news/free-community-covid-19-testing-events. Bring the completed forms to the testing event. Blank forms will also be available onsite.
The events, in partnership with the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, Beaufort City Police Department and Lady’s Island-Saint Helena Fire Department, are part of a statewide effort to provide broad access to testing, especially in rural areas.
