Due to an increase in available testing, RC Hospital and Clinics is offering COVID-19 drive-thru testing at all three sites.
Testing Hours and Locations: See the RC Hospital and Clinics website for maps of the testing sites:
- RC Hospital & Clinics – Olivia Monday – Sunday 24 Hours
- RC Hospital & Clinics – Renville Monday & Wednesday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
- RC Hospital & Clinics – Hector Tuesday & Thursday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Any patient with a new onset of fever, cough, shortness of breath, headache, body aches, sore throat, and loss of taste and/or smell should call RC Hospital & Clinics at 1-800-916-1836 and ask for the triage nurse before arriving at the testing sites.
When a patient arrives at the COVID-19 testing site, a specimen will be collected. After collection, the sample will be tested for coronavirus and the patient will be contacted with test results.
All patients must be screened to determine if they ar e a candidate for COVID-19 testing. High risk groups defined by MDH will remain a priority for testing. Testing is not available to those without symptoms of respiratory illness. Once it is determined if someone meets the criteria for testing, the patient will be directed to the most convenient curbside collection location.
Patients that cannot manage their own symptoms at home should seek emergency services at the Olivia Site. Patients that can manage their symptoms should use the testing sites.
Drive through testing sites allows community members with symptoms to be screened while remaining in their car and limiting exposure to other individuals.
