A patient self-administers a COVID-19 swab test. There are a number pf testing sites throughout the mid-valley.

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.

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 Samaritan 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 Health patients can call their primary care provider or use the “Coronavirus Concerns” MyChart portal to initiate the process for a test.
