We sincerely appreciate your interest in COVID-19 testing at Med Stop.

If you have a fever and a cough and other infectious symptoms as well as a potential exposure to COVID-19, you may be a candidate for testing.

We are following the CDC and local Public Health Department guidelines as to who should be tested in this quickly changing environment.

If you are not sick with a cough and fever AND do not have a possible exposure to COVID-19, you are not currently a candidate for testing per these guidelines. (Appropriate COVID19 testing)

We are happy to evaluate you in our clinic to see if you are a candidate for testing. If after your evaluation, which may include other testing, such as a flu test, we feel you are an appropriate candidate for COVID-19 testing under the current CDC and Public Health Department guidelines, we will collect the sample and send it off to an outside laboratory.


We collect the samples onsite but we do not run the test in our clinic.  The test results take about 3-5 days.  You will be required to quarantine yourself at home until the results of the test are known.

The laboratory will bill you separately for their services. We have no control over what the laboratory charges or what your health insurance may cover of those charges.

Again, we are happy to help take care of you but please understand that if you are not sick with a cough and fever, along with a possible exposure to COVID-19, at this time you are not a candidate for COVID-19 testing under the CDC and Public Health Guidelines.

We hope this information will assist you in making your healthcare decisions and we look forward to assisting in your care.
