State guidelines and testing criteria differ by state, please read or select appropriate state below.

  1. Call your local healthcare provider or hospital if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  2. Test providers will determine if testing is appropriate for your case based on local criteria.. 
  3. Call the coronavirus test site before you go to confirm all final details.

  • If you think you may have COVID-19:
      • Stay home and call your health care provider. Do not go directly to a health care facility without calling a provider unless you are experiencing a medical emergency.
      • A number of urgent care centers and primary care providers in Rhode Island have set up separate areas that serve as Respiratory Clinics, meaning they are specifically evaluating patients suspected of having COVID-19. While these Respiratory Clinics are located in specific areas just for those patients, urgent care centers are still open to see patients who need other services in their usual locations. You must call a Respiratory Clinic first. Unless someone is experiencing a medical emergency, no one should go directly to any healthcare facility.

  • Testing is decided on a case by case basis, considering symptoms, travel history and contact history and is only available for people with symptoms.
  • Specimens are collected by the provider, then sent to the Rhode Island Department of Health’s State Health Laboratories for analysis.
  • Results are generally available within 24 to 48 hours.

For more coronavirus information call 401-222-8022 (available 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday), email or visit the Rhode Island Department of Health’s website.
