In a partnership with the Kentucky Department for Public Health and Gravity Diagnostics, five ARH clinic locations in Floyd, Perry, Letcher and Morgan counties will now offer expanded COVID-19 testing to the public.
The Highlands ARH Regional Medical Center in Prestonsburg has been designated as a hub site for distribution of testing for the Region 8 Health District in the initiative to increase the availability, capacity and turnaround time for laboratory testing for COVID-19 across the state.
The COVID-19 testing will be administered free of charge by an ARH medical professional Monday-Friday. Testing is open to the public regardless of whether they are ill or not, and no appointment is needed. The locations will be able to perform 70 tests to start each per day through their partner Gravity Diagnostics with a result turnaround time of 24-48 hours.

“We are happy to now have the ability to offer an increase in the number of COVID-19 tests we can provide to our community,” said Highlands ARH Community CEO Tim Hatfield. “We are encouraging anyone who would like to be tested for COVID-19 to do so. The more testing we do, the safer our communities become and the sooner we get the State of Kentucky opened back up for business.”
ARH understands this is a stressful time for our communities and has developed both COVID-19 website and Hotline.
