Testing sites across the St. Louis metro area are set up to provide an answer to those wondering, “Do I have COVID-19?"

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people who show symptoms of the virus – which include body aches and general malaise to fever, shortness of breath and a cough – or who want to get tested should contact their health care provider to discuss next steps. The CDC also provides an online Coronavirus Self-Checker to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care.

“Most people will have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care and may not need to be tested,” the CDC website states. “CDC has guidance for who should be tested, but decisions about testing are made by state and local health departments and health care providers.”

The City of St. Louis Department of Health has partnered with the St. Louis Regional Health Commission and local health centers to offer testing “to any city resident who would like to get tested,” according to the City of St. Louis website. “Until recently due to limited supplies, COVID-19 testing in the city had been restricted to those having symptoms. Now anyone can be tested, for free, with no testing restrictions or criteria.”

Those who want to get tested in St. Louis, however, must call the testing site beforehand to schedule an appointment. St. Louis county residents seeking a test must also make appointments and are encouraged to do so online.  

“It’s important to remember that even if you don't think you're at risk, you should still consider getting tested to protect others,” the county website states. “The goal is to detect cases among people who are likely to spread the infection. These individuals include those who work directly with the public, such as medical and residential facility workers, grocery store employees, food service employees and other front-line workers.”
