COVID-19 testing sites are operating throughout the mid-valley, including a number of free testing centers. Primary care providers may be providing testing services to patients who have already established care with them and are not included in this story.
This story will be updated as information on testing changes.
Samaritan Health Services offers testing at numerous locations throughout the mid-valley. All tests at Samaritan sites will be covered by insurance or the CARES Act, so there is no out-of-pocket expense. Currently, testing must be ordered by a health care provider. Screening is typically completed by phone or online, depending on the patient’s situation. The test process differs depending on the location, and more information can be obtained by calling the specific location.
Samaritan asks people experiencing symptoms contact clinics before arriving so the clinics can prepare.
Samaritan Health patients can call their primary care provider or use the “Coronavirus Concerns” MyChart portal to initiate the process for a test. People who are not Samaritan patients or are unable to access the MyChart portal can call 855-543-2780 to begin the process.
