COVID-19 testing is available at SCU Health on a first come, first served basis for any person who would like to be tested. There are two types of tests available: 1) virus test to determine whether there is a current infection; 2) antibody test to determine past exposure. Testing options are assessed and confirmed by phone or video encounter.

Patients who test positive for COVID-19 may seek treatment with their primary care doctor or with OUCH! Urgent Care at SCU Health. If you have severe or life-threatening symptoms, call 9-1-1.
