Keep the Emergency Room OPEN for Emergencies

Our local emergency rooms are a great resource, but should not be used for COVID-19 testing unless you have emergent symptoms. Help keep our emergency rooms open by testing through your healthcare provider or any of the sites below.

&nbsp

Get free at-home COVID-19 tests!

Visit COVIDtests.gov to request your free tests. This federal program offers up to 4 at-home antigen tests per residential address. Orders should begin shipping in late January, and will take 7-10 days to ship.

If you need testing now, please see the resources below.

 

There are two main types of testing for COVID:

  • PCR: This gets sent out to a lab with results usually back in 24-48 hours. Most labs will email your results. This test is considered more accurate, but can often test positive long after someone is actually contagious.
  • Antigen (or rapid): These tests are much more available now. They can be done in a lab or purchased at some pharmacies and done at home. These give results in 15 minutes and are a pretty good gauge of whether someone is actually contagious.

 

Optum Testing Locations

Appointments are highly recommended; limited on-site registration is available. Sites have limited capacity for walk-in testing.
