Community Update: COVID-19 Community Assessment Centers Adjust Operations for Winter

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 14, 2021) - The Davidson County COVID-19 Community Assessment Centers operated by Meharry Medical College will adjust hours of operations to accommodate colder weather through the Winter months.

All the COVID-19 Community Assessment Centers will operate from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday - Friday beginning on Tuesday January 19, 2021. All community assessment centers will be closed on Monday January 18, 2021 in observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.

The assessment centers will also institute a Cold Weather Community Assessment Center Plan for days when opening all three assessment centers is not possible because of frigid temperatures.

Testing will be available at the Nissan Stadium site on these days while the Former Kmart location and Meharry Medical College location are closed.

The goal of the adjustment in operations is to protect the public, healthcare professionals and volunteers at the outdoor assessment centers during the coldest days of the coming months.
