COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Testing

How do I get tested for COVID-19?

If you are experiencing severe symptoms, call 911.  If you are experiencing mild symptoms, please follow the procedure below.

First, you will need an order from your provider.  Call your primary care provider to see if you qualify for testing.  If you don't have a primary care provider, follow this link to the BJC Screening Tool.  For language services, you can call 855.747.1977.  If you qualify for testing through this process, an order will be sent directly to our mobile testing site.

Once you have an order for testing from a provider, visit our drive-thru testing site located just to the south of our emergency department entrance.  

  • Our drive-thru testing is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m.-12 p.m.  It is closed on Sundays.
  • You will remain in your car the entire time. 
  • You will be asked for you provider order (can be in-hand or submitted electronically by your provider), a photo ID and your insurance card if available. 
  • There is no out-of-pocket cost for COVID-19 testing.

After being tested, you will be provided information on home isoloation until your results have come back.  Boone Hospital Center cannot provide you with your testing results.  Your results will be given to you by your ordering provider.
