Some locations offer walk-in Covid-19 testing. It will be listed on the locations individual page if they do so.

Types of COVID-19 Tests:

There are two different types of tests for COVID-19: viral tests and antibody tests. The results for each test can mean different things about your COVID-19 status.

Viral Tests for COVID-19 (Tests for current infection):

Viral tests identify the virus in samples from your respiratory system, such as swabs from the inside of your nose.

  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR):
    • This test detects genetic material (RNA) that is a part of the virus.
    • This is the best test to determine if you currently have COVID-19. If you test positive, this means you have a current COVID-19 infection.
  • Antigen Test:
    • This test detects viral protein that is part of the virus.
    • This test also detects current infections of COVID-19, but are slightly less reliable than the PCR tests.
