On Tuesday, August 17, 2021, Covington County Hospital opened a new Covid-19 Treatment Center, in partnership with the City of Collins, located in the old armory building.

The center will provide monoclonal antibody treatment to Covid-19 positive patients.  Monoclonal antibodies work by binding to a specific target – such as the Covid-19 virus – to make them harmless.

The city helped coordinate the use of the old armory building, recently renamed the Bobby A. Mooney Complex, located at 1613 South Fir Avenue in Collins.

“The City of Collins is committed to our residents here in Collins and Covington County as a whole, ” said Mayor Hope Jones.  “The Board of Aldermen and myself as the mayor would like to do all we can to support our medical community in their efforts to keep our community safe and healthy.”

The treatment center will begin by seeing 60 patients per day.  This number will increase as time and staff allow.

Treatment will be given by appointment only to Covid positive patients who have a doctor’s order or met certain qualifications set by the state.  To schedule an appointment, call 601-698-0316.
