COVID-19 testing & safety
Avenue 360 provides free drive-thru coronavirus testing four days a week. At our clinic in south-central Houston on Griggs Road, we partner with the Houston Health Department and Baylor College of Medicine to offer COVID tests on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-11 a.m. At our clinic in The Heights, testing occurs on Mondays and Wednesdays, but you will need to call (713) 426-0027 to make a testing appointment.
Our patients’ health and safety is our number one priority.
Here are some of the many safety measures Avenue 360 is taking to keep our patients and staff safe and to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Outside our clinics, an Avenue 360 provider asks several screening questions and takes the temperature of people entering the building, including patients and staff. If an individual has a fever, the person is asked to return to their car and wait for our medical team there.
In accordance with guidance from the CDC and Texas officials, and the June 22nd mask mandate in Harris County, all patients must wear a face covering. For those who need a mask, we can provide one. All clinical staff are also required to wear a mask.
We have removed chairs from our waiting rooms to ensure there is at least six feet of distance between patients. There are multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout waiting and exam rooms.
We are asking patients to come to their appointment alone, limiting the number of visitors in the waiting room. For those who need assistance, one visitor can accompany the patient.
Separating COVID patients
Any patient experiencing COVID-19 symptoms is to call ahead (713-426-0027) and notify our medical team. Upon arrival, the patient is to remain in their car and call our triage desk. Our COVID team will come out to your car in full Personal Protective Equipment. We are providing COVID testing at two of our locations: The Heights and South-Central Houston (on Griggs Street). Please call (713) 426-0027 to make a testing appointment.
Avenue 360 launched telemedicine in March. Our medical team of doctors and nurses can see patients virtually by phone or computer from the comfort of their home. To make an appointment, please go here.
We provide credible information on the virus and are here to answer your questions at (713) 426-0027.
