DHEC, Spartanburg Regional reopens free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing site


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control is partnering with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System to reopen a free COVID-19 testing site.

The COVID-19 testing site will be open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the former Spartanburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealership, located at 1035 North Church Street in Spartanburg.

DHEC officials said they had a soft opening on Tuesday and administrated 155 tests. They tested 239 people on Wednesday and 313 on Thursday.

The reason behind reopening of the testing site, according to DHEC, was due to a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases over the past two weeks.
