Dignity Health Clinic in Corning Provides Drive-thru COVID-19 Testing



Corning, Calif. – To support our response to COVID-19 Dignity Health Solano Street Medical Clinic in Corning is now providing drive-thru testing. Testing is offered to anyone who is symptomatic, essential workers (including non-symptomatic) and any worker required to get testing before returning to work.

“The safety of our communities is of the utmost importance to our health care ministry. That is why our Solano Street Medical Clinic in Corning is providing COVID-19 screening for those with and without symptoms. It is our hope to support the direction and needs of our Tehama County Public Health Services Agency in an effort to curtail any expansion of the COVID-19 virus,” said Kris Behrens, Senior Director of Clinics and Support Services, St. Elizabeth Community Hospital.  

Appointments are offered every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through the month of May, starting May 7th. A nasal swab will be performed by our providers from the safety of your own car. Patients will be notified of their test results the following Monday. This test will only determine if you currently have the virus.
