Updated information on COVID-19 and Flu: Restricted visitation is now in effect

Sparrow Laboratories Drive-Thru Services

Sparrow Laboratories offers low-contact drive-thru lab services for COVID-19 swab collection and antibody blood draw collection.

Patients can be tested without physician orders to see if they previously had the COVID-19 virus, or through nasal pharyngeal swab collection to determine if they currently have the virus. All ages are required to come to the drive-thru for any swab collections. Blood draws are not permitted on children under 12.

Routine lab work can be collected at the drive-thru location as well.


Collection Procedures

Patients should bring a picture ID and insurance cards. Drive up to one of seven bays, stay in the car, and Sparrow medical personnel in protective gear will assist. The approximate collection time for each patient is about 10 minutes, but note that some vehicles contain multiple patients.

After the collection is complete, the samples will be sent to a Sparrow testing facility, and results will be made available via the MySparrow patient portal.

Results are sent to your MySparrow patient portal. If you have not signed up for MySparrow, you can do so by going to https://mychart.sparrow.org/mychart/ or by calling Sparrow Laboratories at 517.371.9500. Need help with your account set-up? Call 517.364.HELP.
