A recent coronavirus outbreak in Tigerland has prompted a drive-thru testing site for students Thursday.
Fred's in Tigerland, Neighborhood Health and Relief Telemed is providing testing from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of Fred's. The address is 1184 Bob Pettit Blvd.
Students wishing to get tested must pre-register at http://relieftelemed.com/tigerland. Upon arrival, students must provide two copies of their driver's license and health insurance card. Attendees will be swabbed in their car and receive results in 2-4 days.
"Our hope is to make testing more accessible to the students," Fred's in Tigerland captioned their Instagram picture. "Tigerland is committed to slowing down the transmission of Covid-19."
The testing comes just days after over 100 patrons and employees tested positive for COVID-19 upon visiting bars in Tigerland.
