Christ Community Health Services is expanding its drive-thru testing to both its Hickory Hill and Frayser locations later this week.

Christ Community is offering drive-thru testing at its Hickory Hill location, 5366 Mendenhall Mall, from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, April 17. Drive-thru testing will also be available at Christ Community’s Frayser location, 969 Frayser Blvd., from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 18.

“The expansion of COVID-19 testing into the Hickory Hill and Frayser/Raleigh communities is to ensure that COVID-19 testing is accessible to those individuals within the North Memphis and the Hickory Hill areas that have not been tested and are presenting symptoms,” the release states.

Currently, Christ Community is only doing drive-thru testing at the 3362 S. Third St. location, which remains appointment-only.  Coronavirus testing hours are 2 to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Those seeking to be tested for coronavirus are asked to make an appointment by texting: test2020 to 91999 or calling Christ Community at 901-842-3160.

Christ Community has tested over 500 people since it began coronavirus testing March 21, according to a news release.
