Emergency Departments (EDs) are NOT public COVID testing locations. Please contact your healthcare provider or local health department for COVID testing site locations.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please go to the nearest ED. Patients who are seen in the ED will receive a medical screening examination and a thorough evaluation. Not all patients will receive COVID testing as part of their evaluation in the emergency department.
Vaccination - including a booster for those who are eligible - continues to be the most effective way to protect against COVID.
