COVID-19 Testing at Metro Campus Three Days a Week Beginning Nov. 16
Drive-thru and walk-up testing will be available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
Care Alliance Health Center will offer drive-thru and walk-up COVID-19 testing three days a week through the end of the year at the Metropolitan Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Free testing will take place on campus 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Nov. 16 until Dec. 30 (except for Dec. 25). The testing site will be located in the Lot 4 underground parking garage off of Community College Avenue.
The service is available to community residents as well as Tri-C students, faculty and staff. The program offers testing to individuals regardless of their symptom status, insurance status or ability to pay. Individuals will not be charged for the test.
No appointment is necessary. Testing will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. Metropolitan Campus is located at 2900 Community College Ave. in Cleveland.Visit tri-c.edu/covidtest or call 216-317-1250 for more information.
Care Alliance had been offering the service on those days outside of its Central Avenue clinic. The shift to Metro Campus provides shelter from the weather while also keeping potentially ill people out of public buildings.
The College has partnered with Care Alliance during fall semester to offer weekly testing every Thursday at a Tri-C site. The service rotates between the College’s four campuses. The plan is to continue the program during spring semester.
Care Alliance is a nonprofit community health center providing critical primary and preventative medical services to residents regardless of their ability to pay. It serves the unique needs of patients at two downtown health centers and a mobile unit, as well as through outreach programming.
