OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) says its north and south Oklahoma City health clinic locations will temporarily close and move to curbside-only testing until further notice.

The buildings will remain open as OU Physicians will continue to see patients. 
 
“We continue to see increased demand for COVID-19 testing at our north and south locations,” said LToya Knighten, chief of government affairs for OCCHD. “Temporarily closing our clinics will give us more staff resources to dedicate to COVID-19 testing, as we’re able to test more individuals by expanding the hours tests are provided each day”, Knighten added. 

The OCCHD west clinic will continue to see patients. 
 
Appointment Line and Testing site changes 
Beginning Monday, July 6, OCCHD will offer appointment-only curbside COVID-19 testing from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Beginning July 6, individuals can call the nurse triage line at 405-425-4489 to receive an appointment.
