COVID-19 Testing

Think You Have COVID-19?

If you think you have coronavirus symptoms, or you're worried you've been exposed to the virus, call your primary care provider. A few screening questions may help determine if you need a test. 

Always call ahead. Most places require an appointment. Some places that provide COVID-19 testing require a referral from a primary care provider. 

These clinics now provide screening and limited testing for coronavirus (COVID-19):

You can also request an online virtual visit with your provider or get virtual urgent care (12 - 2 p.m. weekdays) to get screened and, if needed, get a referral for a COVID-19 test.
