Patients with mild symptoms, need for travel test may use labs instead of Mizzou Urgent Care 

MU Health Care is experiencing an increase in patients seeking COVID-19 testing as the virus experiences a resurgence across the state. In an effort to make testing more convenient and to provide the appropriate level of care for community members, MU Health Care will begin offering walk-in COVID-19 tests Monday, July 19, at designated lab locations. These lab testing options are for those who need travel testing or for individuals who have mild symptoms or a known COVID-19 exposure and want to be tested.

The walk-in tests for mild and asymptomatic patients will be available Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the labs at the South Providence Medical Building and the Battle Avenue Medical Building. The Battle lab is closed 12-1 p.m. daily.


  • Face coverings are required, and patients are encouraged to bring their own from home.
  • No visitors are allowed - only the person seeking testing should enter.

Those with COVID-19 symptoms who want to be seen by a medical professional have several options to obtain a test, including:

Those suffering severe symptoms or breathing problems should go to the emergency department or call 911.
