Covid-19 Testing Sites

Below is information on where families can obtain Covid-19 testing. These sites perform the nasal Covid-19 test, not the blood test for Covid-19 antibodies. The information listed below is as up-to-date as possible; for the latest information, please call the testing site. This list is not inclusive of all sites in our area, but includes sites many of our families have used.

Please note:

  • Covid-19 Nasal Swab-rapid refers to the “quick” test with results available the same day. 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.
