Drive-Through Testing In Warwick On Friday

May 21, 2020 | 6 Comments

There will be a “pop up drive-through testing site” at Warwick Academy this Friday from 4pm to 7pm, Premier David Burt said, adding that they can test up to 72 people, and bookings must be made online.

Speaking at last night’s [May 20] press briefing, Premier Burt said, “Just a quick update from the Southside testing facility. They will be taking their testing on the road.

“There will be a West End pop up drive-through testing site, located at the Warwick Academy, this Friday from 4pm to 7pm. This is by appointment only, and there will be no walk-ins for those of you in the west end.

“So, if this trial is successful, there will be more pop up testing facilities throughout the country, so that people will not have to drive all the way to Southside and may be able to be tested inside of their communities.

“Dr. Weldon advises that they can test up to 72 people, but bookings must be made online at, and you can click the link at the very top that says Health Screening Registration to check the availability. When you go there please make sure that you click the Warwick Academy booking option.”

The tests are free.

    I only want the antibody test and I want my results.

      I’ve given a bit of thought to this and the only reason I can come up with for them not wanting to give you a (has been exposed but ok otherwise) result is because they’re afraid that it may create a class of people who think they’re bulletproof that will end up doing stupid things.
      I don’t know if that makes any sense to anyone else but it’s the only thing I can come up with.
      And yes , I’d like to know my results if I took the test myself.

    I don’t need a test but I would like to see if I actually had the virus, through an anti body test. However, I understand that the results are not divulged to the person getting that test. Is that correct? Can anyone confirm?

  3. Mixitup says:

    Not true regarding the antibody test. I’ve received my results, and I’m general public.

  4. Jimmy J says:

    One question that consistently doesn’t get answered…

    Who exactly gets the results of both of the tests, besides your personal physician?
