Sniffle Health and Natural State Laboratories Will Provide Results in 72 Hours or Less
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (April 1, 2020) – Two Arkansas-based companies are now offering drive-thru testing for COVID-19. The partnership between Sniffle Health, a telemedicine company, and Natural State Laboratories (NSL) will help ease the state’s current testing backlog and significantly decrease the results turnaround time to 72 hours or less.
Now through Saturday, April 11, the two entities will work with licensed health care professionals to screen and administer tests from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily at New Life Church at 8000 Crystal Hill Road in North Little Rock off the I-430 exit. In the coming days, NSL will announce additional testing opportunities in Central Arkansas, the Delta and south Arkansas at ar-covid19.com.
“As Arkansas seeks to stem the spread of COVID-19, there’s an urgent need for accurate, fast and affordable testing,” said Ryan Herget, CEO of Sniffle Health. “During this unprecedented time, Sniffle Health is proud to step up and partner with Natural State Laboratories and our state’s health care professionals to provide this essential service.”
Once on site, Arkansans will be asked to provide identification and insurance information, complete a brief questionnaire and schedule an online screening with a Sniffle Health physician. To help ensure as many Arkansans as possible are able to utilize these services, Sniffle will waive its standard $10 booking fee. Patients who are identified as potential COVID-19 cases will be referred for testing by NSL.
“Arkansas’s health care system is under immense stress from COVID-19,” said Steve Harrison, CEO of Natural State Laboratories. “With the help of Sniffle Health and hardworking health care workers, we want to lessen this burden and help meet the demand for expanded coronavirus testing.”
