By San Antonio Military Health System San Antonio Military Health System

The San Antonio Military Health System is adjusting its COVID-19 drive-thru screening and testing hours of operation for the Labor Day weekend. The hours are as follows:​

  • The Brooke Army Medical Center site at Joint Base San Antonio Fort Sam Houston, located in the first-floor parking garage, will be open from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 4 and closed Sept. 5-7.
  • The JBSA-Lackland site at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, located on the ground floor of the parking garage (following the blue cones on Wilford Hall Loop), will be closed Sept. 4-6 and open from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 7.
  • The JBSA-Randolph's site, located at Randolph Clinic, will be closed Sept. 4-7.

Normal hours of operation will resume Sept. 8 at BAMC, weekdays from 8 a.m. to noon; JBSA-Lackland, weekdays from 8 a.m. to noon; and JBSA-Randolph, weekdays from noon to 4 p.m.​

For COVID-19 related symptoms during duty hours, call the Consult and Appointment Management Office, or CAMO, at 210-916-9900 to schedule a virtual appointment with your Primary Care Manager, or PCM, team.

For general COVID-19 questions and information, call or send a secure message to your PCM team or refer to the guidance on the CDC's COVID-19 website. After duty hours, call the MHS Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE (824-2273) or visit to speak or chat with a nurse.

As a reminder, if you are feeling sick or having symptoms, put safety first for yourself and those around you. Stay home and call before coming in to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Continue to do your part to slow the spread of this virus: wear a face covering, wash your hands regularly and socially distance from others, both at work and in your community. That is the best way to preserve the health of our patients and staff.

SAMHS will continue to take proactive steps, working alongside its military and community partners, to both contain the spread and mitigate the impact of the virus.
