All Mississippians can be tested for COVID-19 free of charge at regularly scheduled county health department locations.
Who Can Be Tested
Anyone can be tested for COVID-19 at an MSDH site if they have COVID-19 symptoms, or if they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
There is no charge for testing.
Where to Be Tested
Free COVID-19 testing is available from MSDH in locations statewide. Choose one near you when you schedule your test.
You may also call 855-767-0170 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday) to schedule a test.
Please schedule a testing appointment ahead of time. You can also make an appointment at the testing site, but same-day openings may not be available.
After You Are Tested
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should isolate yourself while you wait for test results to prevent the possible spread of disease.
If you test positive, you should isolate at home. If your symptoms are severe, consider immediate treatment, and contact your doctor or other healthcare provider.
