Here's Where You Can Get Tested For Coronavirus In The St. Louis Area
Updated April 29 with more testing locations
Missouri and Illinois health care providers are ramping up testing capacity in response to COVID-19 projections that the death toll would peak in mid-April.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker predicts the state will be able to test 10,000 people a day by then. The Missouri Health Department said it has the capacity for 2,000 tests a day, not including the capacity of private labs in the state.
To be eligible for a test, you first must be screened by the testing site by phone or online. You cannot bypass the screening, even if a doctor has recommended that you get testing. It is mandatory.
Tests are in limited supply, so health care workers are reserving them for people with coronavirus symptoms, including a cough or fever. The majority of these testing sites are not open to walk-in patients.
Testing is prioritized for:
- Hospitalized patients showing COVID-19 symptoms.
- Residents of retirement homes and other “congregate living facilities” that house individuals over 65 or people with chronic medical conditions.
- Any person who developed COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of contact with someone who has either a confirmed or pending lab test.
