During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Memorial is continually evaluating services to ensure we are meeting the needs of the community. We now have a Drive-Thru Testing Center which has been set-up to meet the growing testing and screening needs to keep our community healthy and safe. COVID-19, Flu and Strep testing are available at this location every day of the week, 8am - 5pm.
Unless you have an order from a Memorial provider, an assessment will be done by our on-site provider prior to testing.
The flu, or influenza, is caused by a virus that infects the respiratory system. Though colds are also caused by viruses, the symptoms of the two illnesses have some differences. The flu is much more likely to be accompanied by fever, headache and extreme exhaustion.
The CDC recommends that people ages 6 months and older receive the flu vaccine each year. Vaccination is especially important for people who are at high risk for serious flu complications. This includes:
- Young children
- Pregnant women
- People with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease
- People 50 years and older

Most people get over the flu without any problems, but occasionally the flu can turn into something more serious. According to CDC, adults should seek urgent medical attention if they have symptoms such as:
- Trouble breathing or shortness of breath
- Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
- Sudden dizziness
- Severe or persistent vomiting
Children need urgent medical attention if they have symptoms such as:
- Fast breathing or trouble breathing
- Bluish skin color
- Not waking up or interacting
- Not drinking enough fluids
- Being so irritable that they don't want to be held
- Fever with a rash
Both adults and children should seek urgent medical attention if symptoms improve but then return with a fever and a worsened cough.
