HELENA - Veterans enrolled in the Montana VA Health Care System (MTVAHCS) can get free COVID-19 testing at 13 different locations statewide. 

The MTVAHCS is partnering with Governor Bullock and the Department of Public Health and Human Services to participate in the Montana State COVID Surveillance Project. The MTVAHCS will have drive-thru testing options at the 13 locations and will test asymptomatic veterans for the virus. 

"Montana veterans who are asymptomatic are invited to come to our MTVAHCS facilities for drive-up COVID-19 testing," MTVAHCS Executive Director Dr. Judy Hayman said. "This asymptomatic testing will help us understand how COVID-19 presents in Montana because often, only people with symptoms are tested. As always, we are grateful for the leadership veterans have shown in taking proactive steps to be healthy."

Veterans will stay in their vehicle during testing and will be notified within 30 days if they test positive or negative. All visitors to a VA facility are required to wear a face covering and will be provided one if needed.
