Regional COVID-19 Testing Information and Locations
COVID-19 testing continues to be an important factor in suppressing the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that anyone with any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. The CDC also recommends testing for those who have had close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone with confirmed COVID-19, with the caveats that: (1) Fully vaccinated people with no COVID-19 symptoms do not need to be tested following an exposure to someone with COVID-19 and (2) People who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past three (3) months and recovered do not need to get tested following an exposure as long as they do not develop new symptoms.
Testing is also recommended for people who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot physically distance as needed to avoid exposure, such as travel, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor settings
COVID-19 testing is still available across the St. Louis Metropolitan region. Information and testing site locations may be found by accessing the links below:
Getting tested can still help to mitigate transmission of COVID-19. The goal is to detect cases early to help reduce further spread of the virus.
