LD Hospital offers high tech covid testing

The Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center now tests for COVID-19. A new  high tech  machine allows the hospital to do  whats called PCR Antigen testing  at the hospital . Hospital  Board  President Bruce Stratton explains who can get  the PCR Antigen test  and get same-day results. Mr. Stratton says if  a patient  does not have symptoms, the test will  be sent to an offsite lab with results  then available  in 3 to 4 days. The tests   are done  with nose swab. The PCR Antigen test  does  requires a doctor’s order, and an  appointment is necessary.  For an appointment, call 936-336-7316 Ext 179.
