COVID-19 testing

We can provide testing if you experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and want to be seen by a provider for evaluation and treatment of symptoms. Testing with a provider visit requires a clinic visit charge.

If you do not have any symptoms or have mild symptoms and need testing for travel or other reasons, learn how to get tested at our COVID-19 Collection Site. Testing at this site does not require a clinic visit charge.

If you have symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain and vomiting, you should go to the University Hospital Emergency Room.
