Health experts say the need for people to get tested is growing as the number of new COVID-19 cases, driven by the delta variant, continues to surge across the country and locally.

Augusta University Health has joined with the Georgia Department of Public Health to increase testing capacity. LTS, a lab under contract to DPH, has taken over AU’s testing site in the old Sears Building at 524 15th St. in Augusta. Testing will be available Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

LTS will conduct PCR testing at the site. The lab results will be returned within 24 to 48 hours. The results can be sent to patients via a text message or email.

Registration is required but will no longer be available through AU’s COVID-19 hotline. Patients register with LTS at this website.

COVID-19 testing is also available at the Richmond County Health Department but at a new location. Effective Sept. 8, testing will be available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 1916 North Leg Rd.

Appointments can be scheduled online at this website. Same day appointments are available.
