Fetter Health Care Network offers free COVID-19 testing clinic to serve Walterboro community

Fetter Health Care Network (Fetter) announced that it will host a free COVID-19 testing clinic in Walterboro, SC at Mt. Olive AME Church (329 Savage St.) on Tuesday, August 4. The mobile testing clinic is open to the public and will administer tests from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Our team is passionate about providing accessible and quality healthcare to all of our communities and we are thankful for the opportunity to serve our friends and neighbors in Colleton County,” said Aretha R. Jones-Powers, CEO Fetter. “We encourage all individuals to remain diligent in their attempts to slow the spread of COVID-19 and ask that they attend our testing clinic if they are in need of a test.”

Since March of this year, Fetter Health Care Network has administered more than 8,000 COVID-19 tests throughout Colleton, Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties. Fetter’s testing clinics rotate to different locations throughout the week. Individuals are simply asked to arrive at their preferred testing clinic location to receive an onsite provider screening and then a COVID-19 test.

In an effort to streamline patient registration, all patient registration will take place as individuals arrive at the clinic. Individuals are welcome to visit FetterCovid19Screening.org to print the registration form prior to arrival. Fetter offers both walk-up and drive-up testing at its mobile clinics.

Individuals who have a known exposure to COVID-19 or are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms can visit FetterCovid19Screening.org for more information. Due to an increased volume of tests being administered, patients are asked to be prepared to wait two to three hours for services and to employ social distancing and wear a face covering while waiting for testing.

Currently, tests are given with no out-of-pocket cost to patients. All insurance providers in South Carolina are covering the cost of COVID-19 testing. Patient insurance information will be processed in order to complete testing. No co-pays or deductibles are being charged. All patients will be served.
