PHOENIX — Arizona's Health Director announced that a state standing order has been declared that will allow those with symptoms to be tested, but dates and locations are to come.
Dr. Cara Christ said in a press conference that those with symptoms will be able to go to test collections sites without a physician's order.
The state standing order will basically mean Dr. Christ is your physician.
DETAILS NOT ANNOUNCED
Dr. Christ said Banner Health is setting testing up with the state, but date, times, and site locations are still being finalized.
The state standing order does not mean a person can show up to a hospital, or healthcare provider and get a test. This order will be designated for the test collection sites they are setting up.
NEW: Coconino County has opened a drive-up coronavirus testing facility at Fort Tuthill, open from 9-4 beginning today. Order for testing from medical provider required. Not open to public, people without proper documentation will be turned away. https://t.co/86dziVcVkd— ABC15 Arizona (@abc15) March 17, 2020
