Testing

 

The CDC encourages testing for all individuals who believe they have had contact with or been exposed to a positive case as well as anyone who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Tests will also be offered to anyone with or without symptoms who lives in or has traveled to an area experiencing active transmission.  

 

Those seeking a test should reserve an appointment to ensure the safe spacing and social distancing between patients. 

 

Patients will be directed to the self-collect specimen using a provided screening device. The specimens will then be sent to our collaborating laboratories. Results are typically made available within 48 to 72 hours, though it can take up to a week. Positive patients will be notified as soon as a result is available. 

 

Insurance may be billed for patients who have it.
