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. You may also be able to receive a test through your primary care provider.

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.
