Covid-19 Testing Sites in our Community

Below is information on where families can obtain Covid-19 testing in our community. This list is not inclusive of all sites in our area, but includes sites many of our families have used. For the latest information and hours of operation, please call the testing site.

Please note:
-Covid-19 rapid refers to the “quick” test. The rapid test is an antigen test that indicates if specific proteins on the surface of the virus are present.
-Covid-19 PCR testing refers to the non-“quick” test. PCR is a molecular test that indicates if RNA (genetic material) of the Covid-19 virus is present. The time taken to get results can vary.

NOTES (please note, we can only offer testing to our patients)
Willows offers Covid-19 testing to our patients of any age who are asymptomatic, and to our patients of any age who are symptomatic. We test asymptomatic patients by appointment as outside “car visits”. We see symptomatic patients by appointment in areas of our office that are physically separated from the rest of the office and accessed by a separate entrance. Please call with questions or to make an appointment. Testing, both Rapid Antigen testing (done in our office) and PCR testing (sent to an outside lab), is done on weekdays and weekends during our regular office hours.
