Fetter Health Care Network (FHCN), a Federally Qualified Health Center in partnership with Berkeley and Charleston County Municipalities and Government, operates a free mobile COVID-19 Respiratory Collection Test Site in both counties. Same-day testing is available; however, individuals are highly encouraged to get screened before arriving for quicker service by visiting FetterCovid19screening.org or calling 1-800-365-7410.

Between Monday, May 4, 2020 and Sunday, May 17, 2020, FHCN reported that it administered 2,493 tests throughout Berkeley and Charleston Counties. The FQHC administered a total of 472 tests in Berkeley County with 33 confirmed positives. 2,021 tests were administered in Charleston County with three confirmed positives. 857 tests out of the 2,493 are still waiting on results.
