Atrium Health will host a mobile coronavirus screening center from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Wednesday at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Richfield.

Atrium advises people who have been exposed to large crowds to get tested, saying that it’s best to get tested within four to seven days after contact.

Screening and testing will be done for people who have the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste and/or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.
Since wait times may be long, Atrium encourages people to come as soon as possible. No ID is needed for testing or screening.
