For anyone who would like to be tested for COVID-19 due to recent onset of possible viral symptoms, travel, or possible exposure to someone with COVID, we encourage you to contact your primary care provider. This is especially important for those with underlying health conditions as your medical provider may be able to test and start treatment immediately. Earlier medical attention for high-risk individuals can be lifesaving. For those without a doctor or nurse practitioner, you may wish to establish with a new primary care provider.
PCR testing is available at many pharmacies and urgent care centers.
You can also schedule online for Patriot Urgent Care.
Please go online to Patriot Urgent Care to schedule an appointment.
Who should get tested?
Anyone showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19, preferably as soon as possible.
If you are not showing symptoms (asymptomatic) but have been exposed to COVID-19, then testing is recommended 5 days after exposure.
People traveling or undergoing surgery.
Community members should follow the recommendations that are provided to them by the clinical care staff where they get tested. Click here for information on quarantine and isolation.
