COVID-19 testing is important to identify those who might have the virus and thus prevent continued spread, as well as to offer appropriate monitoring and treatments. COVID-19 testing completed in our clinics will be offered according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

The CDC recommends that anyone with any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. For the continued safety of our patients, staff and store customers, purchasing an at-home test kit or scheduling an appointment is highly recommended. This is especially recommended for patients currently exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms. Information provided during the appointment process will help our staff determine the best and safest process for treatment. Walk-ins are allowed but will be required to wear a face covering and to practice social distancing guidelines during the visit.
