Recently answered questions
Where can I get tested for COVID-19?
If you are on assignment or about to start your assignment, check FIRST with the state guidelines or facility you are assigned to and identify if they offer testing. Testing locations and availability vary across the country. Decisions about testing are at the discretion of state and local health departments. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, call your medical provider first. If you are currently on assignment, check with the facility you are assigned to and identify if they offer testing. If they do not offer testing, ask the facility for guidance on recommended nearby community testing locations. If you have exhausted those options, you can also coordinate testing through public health laboratories, or work with clinical or commercial laboratories.
