The Schneider Regional Medical Center has launched a drive-up COVID-19 testing site at the Roy L. Schneider Hospital (9048 Sugar Estate, St. Thomas).

“Given the exponential increase in COVID-19 cases in the territory and the need for additional testing sites, SRMC now offers highly efficient testing with same-day results through our fully automated Holistic Panther Fusion® System. We also provide quick registration online,” said Chris Borgesen, vice president of operations.

No physician referral or appointment is required. Visitors are asked to pre-register online at https://www.srmedicalcenter.org/register-app. The SRMC testing site operates from 8:30-11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. Tests are $100 each.
