Video: Long Lines at Lubbock’s UMC Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing on Friday Morning
The morning after Lubbock reported over 100 new cases of COVID-19, hundreds showed up to University Medical Center's drive-thru clinic for testing.
The video showing the long line on Friday morning (June 19th) is one sign of how concerned the community is about the recent swell in coronavirus cases. Nearly two dozen COVID-19 exposure sites were added to the list this week in Lubbock, prompting the need for many more people to be tested.

Have a great weekend, but remember to practice social distancing and wear face masks. Be careful out there. Follow recommended guidelines to help reduce the transmission rate so that our area hospitals do not become overwhelmed.
