Need a free community testing event? Visit this site to search for events throughout Oregon. You’ll need to click “Register” and create a new user account that will ask for contact information. This will let you schedule an appointment for your selected event and get your test results. Because of the high demand for COVID-19 tests, an appointment and voucher are required for testing, one person per appointment. If there are no appointments available, please select another location or date. Only those with appointments are guaranteed a test.

call health care provider

Call before you go

If you have flu-like symptoms or have reason to think you might have COVID-19, let your healthcare provider know before you visit. This will help avoid exposing anyone else at the provider’s facility. Ask if the site takes your insurance or has free testing options.

What if I think I’ve been exposed?

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, and you develop fever, cough or trouble breathing, stay away from other people, so you don’t get them sick. Call your health care provider or a clinic right away. They can help you determine whether you need medical evaluation, including testing.


What if I test positive?

Your healthcare provider and public health staff will give you information about how to keep from spreading the virus to your family and friends. You will need to isolate yourself from other people for as long as public health instructs. You will also need to avoid coughing on others and to wash your hands frequently, to protect them from infection.

You will receive a call from a case investigator at your local public health authority who will talk with you about how to prevent the spread of the virus, including staying home or at a location provided by public health until the danger has passed; provide health information on how to care for yourself; and share resources available in your community that can support you while you self-isolate.

What if I test negative?

If you test negative, you must still take precautions to keep yourself and others safe. Maintaining physical distancing and wearing a mask are critical. Because tests can provide a false negative result, if you are symptomatic or you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, you should continue to follow public health recommendations to stay home.

antibody testing

Antibody testing: what we know right now

Although we’re receiving data on some antibody tests performed in Oregon, there currently isn’t enough evidence to suggest that antibody tests are a reliable indicator that someone has or had COVID-19 (or that they have immunity). As evidence continues to emerge, we may begin to track these test results more closely and to use the data they provide. At this time, we continue to rely on viral tests such as PCR test for confirming cases of COVID-19 in Oregon.
