COVID-19 Testing at Oak Ridge High School; Must Meet CDC Criteria

For Friday’s COVID-19 testing at Oak Ridge High School, Kroger Health can only test people who meet CDC criteria. Therefore, only people with COVID-19 symptoms, first responders, healthcare workers and people who may have been exposed to the virus can be tested at this time. Symptoms include fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Appointments must be made online at or by phone at 1-888-837-8852. If someone who meets CDC criteria is unable to register online or via phone, they can be registered on site but need to meet the CDC criteria. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this ever-changing time. We look forward to getting more Oak Ridger’s and Tennesseans tested so we can be armed with the data we need to fight this invisible enemy!


The totals are in for our 3-day COVID-19 testing event:

116 Wednesday

186 Thursday

291 Friday

593 Total

As previously mentioned, results can be expected in 3 to 7 days. We are looking forward to getting this data back so we can fight this ever-changing virus.
