New COVID-19 Testing Priorities in Northwest Arkansas

As of July 2, 2020, due to an increased testing demand and a national shortage in the COVID-19 testing reagent and supplies, the Northwest Arkansas health care community needs to prioritize COVID-19 viral testing for people who meet certain criteria. 

MANA Clinics will offer COVID-19 viral testing according to the new criteria outlined below: 

  • Symptomatic individuals
    • cough,
    • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,
    • or two of the following:
      • fever,
      • chills,
      • muscle aches,
      • sore throat,
      • headache,
      • new taste or smell disorder
      • or quick variation in temperature.
  • Household contacts of confirmed positive COVID-19 individuals (small children are not encouraged to be tested unless they are symptomatic).
  • Asymptomatic health care workers with exposure or possible exposure.
  • Any individual by request of the Arkansas Department of Health for exposure.
  • Pre-operative – having surgical procedures, including scheduled induction and C-section, and pulmonary function testing.
