Do you need to be tested for the COVID-19 virus? Testing is recommended for those who are symptomatic, or whom believe they have been exposed to someone with Covid-19, or those who live in congregate housing (such as a shelter). Testing is FREE and available for anyone wishing to be tested. You do not need a referral to be tested. Symptoms may include fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rash on skin, discoloration of fingers or toes, chest pressure or pain, loss of speech or movement. Important: if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
By scheduling your test in either Columbus or Marysville you are reserving a specific time and test. Very limited same-day, drive up testing may be available with a small number of tickets given out at the start of the testing time to those who do not have an appointment. You may be asked to return during an assigned window of time later in the day. We strongly encourage you to sign up for an appointment time. Appointment registration will open on Friday for the following week. Testing is offered on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Marysville and on Friday in Franklinton.
