Where can I get a PCR test done?

At-home antigen testing 

COVID-19 at-home antigen tests are diagnostic tests that are approved by the FDA with Emergency Use Authorization. You can purchase these tests at pharmacies and other locations and test yourself for the COVID-19 antigen.

Antigen tests detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus, but they are less sensitive than PCR tests.

  • If you have COVID-19 symptoms and a negative home antigen test result, you can schedule a confirmation PCR test.
  • If you have a positive home antigen test result, you do not need to schedule a confirmatory PCR test.

Free at-home tests

You can order 4 free at-home (antigen) COVID-19 tests from the federal government. 

Where can I get antigen testing done aside from home kits?

If you test positive

If you test positive for COVID-19, you should stay home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Learn more about symptoms and when to seek medical care
