COVID-19 Testing

If you are seeking COVID-19 testing - whether you are feeling ill, might have been exposed or for some other reason - there are multiple options in the area. Please note that different test sites have different requirements and set-ups and some options require making an appointment in advance. 

Most urgent care clinics now have rapid testing resources available. Contact your health care provider or an urgent care clinic near you to find additional testing resources.

If you are seeking a test because you are experiencing symptoms or have been recently exposed, please remember to isolate or quarantine before and after your test. This will help prevent sickness from spreading to others while you await results. See our Feeling Sick page for detailed information.

What Your Test Results Mean


How do we measure the presence of variants like Delta?

Missouri is participating in the national surveillance for COVID-19 variants of concern. Our state’s public health laboratory is sequencing a limited amount of samples for presence of genetic material specific to each variant. See the latest data.

Since February 2021, the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services has been collaborating with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the University of Missouri to test wastewater samples for the presence of COVID-19variants in our communities.
