Testing for Coronavirus (COVID-19)
University Hospitals Offers Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing
If you suspect you have coronavirus because of symptoms or your recent travel history, the first step is to call your physician’s office or use UH Virtual Visit. Your physician will determine your risk, the level of care you need and whether you should be tested for COVID-19.
To receive a COVID-19 test at our sites, you must have a UH physician’s order.
Patients of any age will be tested regardless of ability to pay, and no copays will be charged.
To alleviate delays, patients will be assigned a 30-minute time slot to arrive for testing.
Where To Go
Enter off Cedar Rd. onto Landerbrook Drive (between Cedar and Brainard Rd.).
More sites are expected to open. Please check back for updates.
What to Expect at a Drive-Through Testing Site
At a drive-through testing site, the patient stays in the car. A health care provider in personal protective equipment takes the patient’s temperature, checks for breathing difficulties and swabs the patient’s nose to get a sample that will be sent to a UH lab.
By sending samples to UH labs for evaluation, we can deliver faster results to patients. This allows quick identification of which patients need to be isolated to slow the spread of the disease. Results are expected to be available within a day.
University Hospitals is testing in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
