Cleveland - Cuyahoga Community College and Care Alliance Health Center are joining to bring COVID-19 testing to Tri-C students, faculty and staff, as well as residents of the surrounding community.
The program offers testing to individuals regardless of their symptom status, insurance status or ability to pay. Individuals will not be charged for the test.
Drive-thru and walk-up testing dates will be offered at four Tri-C sites — Eastern Campus in Highland Hills, Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland, Western Campus in Parma and Westshore Campus in Westlake.
Testing hours and dates will be posted here. Individuals will be tested on a first-come, first-served basis.
The program reflects state guidance on testing as classes restart on campuses this fall.
“This COVID-19 testing partnership with Care Alliance is the latest step toward ensuring the safety and well-being of the entire College community,” Tri-C President Alex Johnson said.
Individuals can also schedule a testing appointment at the Care Alliance Central Clinic, located at 2916 Central Avenue in Cleveland. Call (216) 317-1250 to get pre-screened before the visit.
Care Alliance is a nonprofit, federally qualified community health center providing comprehensive primary and preventative medical services to residents regardless of their ability to pay. It serves more than 16,000 Clevelanders each year.
“We are commited to the lasting health of all in our community,” said Claude L. Jones, president and CEO of Care Alliance. “With this testing partnership with Tri-C, we hope to better identify, understand and stop the spread of the virus in our neighborhoods.”
