“Where can I go to get tested?” “I’m worried and I want a test.”
Testing is STILL NOT AVAILABLE ON DEMAND. There is still a terrible shortage of tests, especially north of the city.
Two collection sites are available for pre-screened people suspected of having COVID-19 to give a specimen sample for a test. These are not testing sites. Testing is done offsite and results are not immediately available.
The collection site is ONLY for people who meet ALL of the following criteria:
- You called your doctor’s office and had a consultation.
- Based on your symptoms and other information you provided, your doctor determined you meet criteria for COVID-19 testing and ordered a test for you.
- You have a scheduled appointment at the collection site. Your doctor will give you the phone number to call to schedule an appointment at the collection site.
So contact your doctor.
