COVID-19 Testing provided by Knox County Health Department

Free COVID-19 testing will be at the Knox County Health Department (140 Dameron Ave., Knoxville, TN 37917) this week. We will continue testing for COVID-19 Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

KCHD has created a webpage providing Holiday safety guidance and recommendations here.

While we will continue to test until 3 p.m., we may need to cut the line prior to 3 p.m. in order to process the tests and get them to the lab in a timely manner. We ask for patience as we expect there will consistently be long lines. Testing is free, and we are no longer collecting insurance. We recommend that children be seen by their primary care physician (PCP), but we will attempt to test children of all ages. If they are not cooperative, we will refer them to their PCP. For more information, please call KCHD's Public Information Line at 865-215-5555 or toll-free at 888-288-6022. The information line is available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT, Monday through Friday.
