Remind me who we can call at the Hamilton County Health Department to review our policies and procedures?
Hi Samantha. We previously had Lowe Wilkins on a call, but Thom, Hugh— is there someone in particular you recommend?
Tom Bodkin is the Public Information Officer for the HamCo Health Dept.

I think an industry weakness is lack of rapid same day testing. Does anyone have arrangement where they can get this type of testing; Currently there is some same day testing available but it can take days to get an appointment
Great question Henry … We've seen long time frames (6-10 days sometimes) from partners and/or family members that have been tested.
Most of the testing I've heard about have taken 3 - 5 days. Many are in the 4-5 day range. Those tested need to keep logging into the website. You will see the results there before you receive an email. - Thom
Most of our team testing has taken 3-5 days except the GA residence have been 10-14 days. Luckily we have not had to many in GA.
Quick care next to Publix in Northshore has same day testing
It is super sporadic … some Hamilton Co have been next day, many 3-5 and some longer
AFC has them but appointments are required and often hard to get
American Family Care*
Thank you! We will look into that and try to include it in a future update.
