HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - It’s been over a month since Huntsville Hospital opened up their fever and flu clinic on Governor’s Drive And during that time they’ve tested around 2,500 patients for COVID-19.
Greg Lochner with Huntsville Hospital tells us the number of people working at the clinic each day has gone way down.
When they opened it required five teams of people, now he says they only need two or three teams.
We asked Lochner how much longer he thought the Governors Drive one would stay open. He says at least a few more weeks.
Now that people are starting to go back to work, they’ve had several large companies reach out to request tests.
“Jobs that are very close quarters, assembly lines, stuff like that, we are testing some of their employees as well. Working out situations where they can have some of their employees sent and tested,” Locher said.
