Wise Health System East Campus has tested 46 patients since March 10. Of those, 33 tests were negative, and 13 are pending.

Wise Health Clinics has tested 4 patients, and 2 were negative, 2 are pending.

Drive-thru testing, which started Friday, has conducted a total of 21 tests, all of which are pending.

“At this time the numbers only reflect testing that has taken place at Wise Health System and Wise Health Clinics locations in Wise County,” a WHS Facebook post said Friday. “These numbers do not include testing by other physician offices that are independently owned and operated in Wise County.”

County Judge J.D. Clark issued an executive order Monday afternoon directing all public, private and commercial labs or medical facilities in Wise County to report to his office the number of COVID-19 tests conducted, and the results, on a daily basis, effective immediately. Read more at
