COVID-19 Testing

HealthPoint is testing for COVID-19.
 

If you:

  • Have fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, chills, body aches, loss of taste/smell, or other cold- or flu-like symptoms
  • Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19
  • Work or live in a place where COVID-19 cases have been confirmed

Please call a HealthPoint clinic to be evaluated.

If you are not currently a HealthPoint patient, call 1-866-893-5717 or any of our clinics for a testing appointment.

Most people with symptoms and/or exposure will receive a doctor's order for COVID-19 (coronavirus) testing. The test uses a cotton swab to collect cells from your nose.

What is COVID-19/coronavirus antibody testing?

Antibodies are made by our immune systems as a weapon to fight infection. A COVID-19 antibody test might detect if a person’s immune system has fought the COVID-19 virus, but it is not always accurate. 

If you have antibodies, does that mean you are immune (protected) from COVID-19?

No. Scientists do not know yet if antibody tests can prove if a person is immune to COVID-19.  

The antibody test: 

- Does NOT test for immunity to COVID-19  
- CANNOT tell you if you could get COVID-19 in the future  
- CANNOT diagnose if you are currently infected with COVID-19  
- CANNOT prove that someone is not contagious  
 

The best way to prevent getting or spreading COVID-19 is to practice social distancing, wash your hands frequently, cover your cough/sneeze,  and wear a mask in public.  

Can I be tested for antibodies at HealthPoint?

HealthPoint is not currently doing COVID-19 antibody testing. 

We are following recommendations of experts at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and Washington Department of Health.  

Right now, these organizations are not recommending antibody testing for most people, because these tests often give false results. 

If you have other questions about antibody testing, please schedule a phone visit with your HealthPoint medical provider. 

HealthPoint is accepting new patients for primary care.
 

If you do not currently have a health care provider and are feeling sick, please call HealthPoint to set up a new patient telephone visit. If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, your new health care provider may recommend that you be tested for COVID-19. You can also schedule a telephone visit for any other health concern.
