If you have COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle/body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea - or were exposed without a mask to a person with confirmed COVID-19 - you qualify for a COVID-19 test.

COVID-19 Viral Testing

COVID-19 viral tests check if you have a current COVID-19 infection. All Tower Health Urgent Care locations offer COVID-19 assessment and viral testing. An appointment is not required, however, an order from your physician may expedite the screening process.
