South County gets drive-thru coronavirus testing


St. Louis County is now providing limited COVID-19 testing to county residents at two drive-thru sites. 

Residents will have to show symptoms and meet testing criteria in order to get a test.

Drive-thru testing sites will be offered at county health clinics in South County and North County. This is the first drive-thru testing offered in South County after Mercy pulled its plan for a site.

The testing will be conducted by the county Department of Public Health at the South County Health Center, 4580 S. Lindbergh Blvd. in Sunset Hills, and the John C. Murphy clinic, 6121 North Hanley Road in Berkeley.

The drive-thru tests will be provided by appointment only.

If you would like to be screened for an appointment, visit or call 314-615-0574. 

Screening criteria prioritizes individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 who have risk factors for poor outcomes or are at particular risk for spreading illness to others if infected.

While DPH’s current testing capacity is limited, the goal is to expand testing in the community by utilizing additional funding as it becomes available.
