Officials with Wesley Healthcare are reminding the community they are not a public COVID testing site.
“While we are able to test individuals presenting with severe symptoms who may require admission to the hospital, Wesley is not a public testing site and does not offer walk-in COVID-19 testing,” said Lowell Ebersole, DO, chief medical officer for Wesley Healthcare.
Unless you are experiencing severe symptoms, you’re urged to quarantine at home if you are concerned you may have the virus.
“Typically, those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine will not require additional treatment,” Dr. Ebersole said. “However, those who have not been vaccinated may find themselves facing more serious symptoms. If that occurs, they should seek care immediately.”
If you need to get tested for COVID, there are more than a dozen public testing sites still running in Sedgwick County. For a list of testing sites, follow the link at the bottom of this page. More home testing options are also being offered at local stores, including Walmarts.
“We want to make sure we can provide care to those patients who need it most,” Ebersole said. “If area residents wish to be tested for COVID-19, we ask that they utilize the resources already locally available.”
