Augusta University Health reducing COVID-19 testing, shifting staff to vaccinations



AUGUSTA, Ga. – Augusta University is reducing its COVID-19 testing at its drive-thru testing facility on 15th Street in downtown Augusta.

Starting Monday, April 26, the site will be open for testing from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, the site will be open from 7 a.m. until noon, a news release said.

The reduction is due to a decline in demand and will allow AU Health to shift its staff from testing to administering coronavirus vaccinations.
