HCMC Continues to See and Treat COVID-19 Patients – Urges Continued Precautions to Ensure Health of Community

Posted

PARIS, Tennessee – The professionals at Henry County Medical Center have received calls and messages regarding our testing at Henry County Medical Center and specific tests that are suspect of being false positives.  

Our laboratory uses two different reference labs to process COVID-19 tests.  The tests we use are referred to as “PCR” tests.  These are not rapid screening tests, but are a true diagnostic test.   A PCR test detects the genetic information of the virus, and that is only possible if the virus is present.   

We understand there is so much misinformation.  Please know our statistics are available daily, Monday through Friday, offering a snapshot of what is currently in our community based on health department data, the state data, and the data from HCMC and HCHC.  This is available to you on our website at www.hcmc-tn.org as well as on our social media outlets including Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter.  

So, Henry Countians, please know we are here for your health, and we encourage you to continue to social distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands.   #StandUp, #MaskUp, and #WashUp - #MaskUpHC

For more information, please go to our website at www.hcmc-tn.org or call our FindLine at 731-644-3463.
