CHI Health will begin COVID-19 testing Friday at its in-house CHI Health laboratory.

The lab has the capacity to complete 180-270 tests per day with a 24-48 hour turnaround, a CHI spokeswoman said.

There will not be drive-thru testing, the spokeswoman said.

Medical providers will order the test based on who is “at greatest need,” starting with critically ill patients and exposed health care and EMS workers.

The lab is in Omaha with plans to expand in Lincoln, Kearney and Grand Island.
