COVID-19 testing approved for commercial truck drivers in Arkansas

clinic map

As commercial truck drivers have continued to deliver hope and essential services, it is important they have confidence in their health while they pick up and deliver loads across the country and return to their homes and communities. Arkansas Trucking Association has worked with the Department of Health to identify 30 community health clinics in the state where professional truck drivers can receive a COVID-19 test.

The clinic locations shown below are open Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm. It is recommended to call ahead and make an appointment, but it is not required. Some locations have extended hours on certain days. That information is available at the links provided. 

Drivers should bring their CDL and insurance card and expect to wear a mask while visiting the clinic.  There is no out-of-pocket expense for the test.  Result times vary but average 2-3 business days. Please note, a negative test result is a snapshot in time and only indicates that you did not have the virus at the time of the test. Individuals can still get sick and should continue to follow distancing guidelines and wash hands often. A positive COVID-19 test means you currently have or recently had the virus. Monitor your symptoms and get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing, confusion, or bluish lips or face.

The Arkansas Trucking Association is proud of our commercial truck drivers and advocated to make this testing available.  If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Newton at 501.372.3462 or shannonnewton@arkansastrucking.com.
