Officials say those securing an appointment should be prompt in reporting at the scheduled time to keep the clinic running as efficiently as possible. When arriving at the site, those being tested should wait for direction from staff before entering the building and masks are required to be worn once you exit your vehicle and the entire time you are in the building.
