All participants will receive a follow-up phone call from Wheeler in 3-4 days to review test results.


In addition to the drive-through and walk-up testing option above, Wheeler offers both COVID-19 virus and antibody tests for current patients at any of its Family Health & Wellness Centers:

No symptoms are required to be tested. Please contact Wheeler's Navigation Center at 888.793.3500 to talk to a Wheeler provider about what options are right for you, and to learn more about our in-car and outside testing process at each Family Health & Wellness Center. Patients will need a virtual appointment with a provider to be assessed and test ordered.

Patients will be instructed to remain outside the Family Health & Wellness Center location, call the Navigation Center, and follow the prompts for outside testing. Virus testing is self-administered by patients under guidance by Wheeler staff and is a very quick process.

If you are an existing Wheeler patient and are arriving for your scheduled testing appointment, please call Wheeler's Navigation Center at 888.793.3500 from your car or outside. You will be prompted to select your location, and our staff will meet you outside to conduct the testing in a safe manner. Thank you!


Through a partnership with the Bristol Housing Authority, Wheeler is providing pop-up COVID testing at housing authority locations throughout the city. For more information or details, please contact the Bristol Housing Authority.
