Drive-through testing

The Williamson County Health Department is providing free COVID-19 drive-through testing at the Williamson County Agricultural Center at 4215 Long Lane in Franklin.

The Williamson County Health Department (WCHD) completed 877 COVID-19 tests Monday, making it the highest testing day since WCHD’s first day of drive-through testing on April 18.

The Tennessee Department of Health also reported Williamson County currently has 1,001 positive cases, with 498 of those being active cases. 

“We would like to remind the community that if they are coming to receive a test, they should plan on self-isolating until their test results come back to prevent transmission if results are positive,” Williamson County Health Director Cathy Montgomery said. “With the number of tests increasing, we will naturally see the number of positive cases increase as well.”

WCHD is providing free COVID-19 drive-through testing at the Williamson County Agricultural Center at 4215 Long Lane in Franklin Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Testing is provided to anyone regardless of symptoms or county of residency. No appointment is necessary. 

Test results are currently being provided within four to seven days of testing through an online portal.

The testing site will be closed on July 3 for Independence Day. Other COVID-19 testing sites in and around Williamson County can be found by going to https://www.tn.gov/health/cedep/ncov/remote-assessment-sites.html

“It is critical for us to also remember the basics: wash your hands, wear a mask when in public, and physically distance (staying at least 6 feet away from others) whenever possible,” Montgomery said.

TDH is posting updated COVID-19 case numbers by 2 p.m. CDT each day at www.tn.gov/health/cedep/ncov.html. Find additional information at www.tn.gov/governor/covid-19.html and www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
