COVID-19 Screening & Testing

Early recognition of COVID-19 symptoms and testing can really help reduce the risk of transmission of the disease from one person to the next.

Complete a self-screening to determine if you need a test by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Do I have any symptoms of COVID-19?
    (Symptoms may include a fever with a temperature over 100.0 F, chills or shivering, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, cough, difficulty breathing, a changed or reduced sense of smell or taste, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea.)
  • Have I had close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has been confirmed to have COVID-19?

If you answered yes to either you should be tested as soon as possible and quarantine until you receive your test results.


Testing Locations

Our COVID-19 testing locations treat people 2 years of age and above. Patients younger than 2 years of age should schedule an appointment for testing with their provider or at an urgent care clinic.

If it has been recommended or you are interested in getting a COVID-19 test, view our list of testing locations around the state.

  • We recommend that you call the site to make sure testing is available. Hours are subject to change with little notice.
  • Bring a mask and be prepared to wear it.
  • Bring a picture ID, your insurance card(s) or insurance information. First responders also bring your employee badge.
  • Patients under age 18 must have a parent, guardian or power of attorney present to be tested.
  • Please be prepared that you may have a wait time once you arrive at the testing site.

Generally, there is no charge to you for COVID-19 testing.

If you have health insurance, COVID-19 testing will be billed to your insurance. We will need your insurance information to do this for you. Your health insurer may still require you to pay a co-pay or high deductible costs that have to do with the COVID-19 test. While most insurances are covering these costs, you should check with your health insurer to find out more. If you receive any other services (such as blood tests, x-rays, or breathing treatments) at the same visit, you may have to pay out-of-pocket costs. Presbyterian is covering the cost of COVID-19 testing for individuals without insurance during the pandemic.
