Please wear a mask and bring your health insurance card with you if you have one.
Upon arrival, you will be asked to stay inside your car and sign paperwork stating you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you agree to be tested and you will self-isolate until you are contacted by Banner with your test results.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) -
Escalera Health opened its drive-through COVID-19 testing site at its midtown location on March 16. With testing available through Accu Reference Medical Lab and some equipment provided by the Pima County Health Department, the testing site is one place where adults of all ages can get tested in Tucson.
“We are able to do about 100 per day and there’s no shortage, right now, on testing kits,”Dr. Glicksman said. “We haven’t turned anyone away and aren’t planning to.”
Though anyone can visit the drive-through site, teams are prioritizing at-risk patients, like those with pre-existing conditions, healthcare workers, first responders, and patients who may have been exposed as well as those showing symptoms, which include fever, dry cough, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.
“One of our health providers will come out and meet patients in their car, wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment, and then do a quick focus history to make sure we are testing people who really need to be tested,” Dr. Christian Moher, a physician and chief executive officer of Escalera Health, said.
Escalera’s drive-through site can test 100 patients a day, using one kit per patient. The whole process takes about 10 minutes, from screening questions to the nasal swab. Patients can expect to hear back from Escalera in a couple of days over the phone.
Escalera Health’s drive-through testing site, located at 2224 N. Craycroft Road Suite 100, is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., closed for lunch from 12 to 1 p.m. Patients do not need an appointment to get tested. The site will bill to the patient’s insurance if they have it. No one will be turned away for the inability to pay,
