Healthy Connections will wrap up the first phase of its mass Covid-19 testing with a pop-up event on Tuesday, June 23 in Hot Springs Village.

The free drive-through testing event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cordoba Center near the West Gate. No health insurance is required or needed. Patients will be tested from their vehicles. This will be the second pop-up testing event held in Hot Springs Village and the 15th overall since the tour began in late May.

This test is the simple test. While it remains a nasal swab, the test is reported by most patients to be painless. See an example of the test and how it is given at

Healthy Connections has tested nearly 2,000 people in 10 counties over the past month. This included a previous stop in Hot Springs Village on May 28. After this pop-up testing event, Healthy Connections will resume its testing tour with a stop on July 8 at The Centre at Forest Lakes in Hot Springs.
