New Registration Process for Walker Cleveland Community COVID-19 Testing Site
Individuals will now need to schedule an appointment time for COVID-19 testing
Due to the overwhelming demand for testing, updates have been implemented at the Walker Cleveland Community COVID-19 Testing Site in order to better serve our community.
Individuals will now need to register for a scheduled appointment time at https://redcap.link/WalkerCOVIDTesting. Once an appointment time is confirmed, individuals will be prompted to register with Mako labs.
Everyone must have a confirmed appointment time and a QR code from MAKO to be tested, even if you have previously registered. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate any unscheduled patients.
The on-site, drive-thru testing will be located in the garage of the W. O. Walker Building in University Circle, 10524 Euclid Ave., Cleveland. Individuals 2 years and older are able to register. The site will offer free PCR testing, and individuals will receive their results in approximately 2-3 days. Masks are required except when testing is underway.
Due to the high demand for testing, we ask individuals not to arrive more than 15 minutes early for your test. Those who arrive more than 15 minutes early will be asked to come back at their scheduled appointment time.
If you are unable to register at the Cleveland Community COVID-19 Testing site, we encourage you to find a COVID-19 test at one of many other locations, such as a local retail pharmacy, doctor’s office, community health center, or urgent care center. Visit the Coronavirus.Ohio.gov site to find a testing center near you. Rapid testing kits are available for purchase at groceries and pharmacies, and for free at many local health departments and public libraries. Please do not go to an emergency department for COVID-19 testing.
The Walker Community COVID-19 Testing site is led by the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio National Guard and supported by Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals.
