LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Starting Monday, April 19, Covenant Medical Group will close all COVID-19 drive-through testing sites in Lubbock. Locations impacted include Health Plus, Northwest Urgent Care, and Covenant Children’s Pediatric Urgent Care. These clinics will continue testing inside their facilities.

With COVID-19 cases declining and transmission numbers staying low, CMG has seen a significant decline in testing needs of about 83%. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in Lubbock, CMG was administering an average of 160 tests per day. Today, we are administering an average of 27 tests per day.

Since the start of the pandemic last March, Covenant Medical Group has provided more than 33,000 COVID-19 tests to our community through drive-up testing alone.

Covenant Health will continue to provide all patients with COVID-19 testing options, offering both rapid and PCR tests. Patients that are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, and need to be tested can visit any of our walk-in sites below.
