Testing at Ogden Clinic

Our clinics do not test for the Coronavirus unless directed by the Utah Department of Health based on symptoms and potential exposure. A person must meet certain criteria to be tested for the virus and at that time our providers can collect any samples that are required.

How can I be tested for COVID 19?

Patients who are suspected by a healthcare provider after a clinical evaluation to have COVID -19, will receive a laboratory order to have the test at a drive through testing facility in the community. These orders are only given when medically necessary and is at the discretion of a healthcare provider.

Can I just get a test to make sure I don’t have COVID-19

No. Testing for COVID-19 is currently limited to those patients who meet medically necessary criteria. This criteria must be determined by a healthcare provider during a medical evaluation.

Should I schedule an appointment to be checked for COVID-19 even though I don’t have any symptoms?

Testing is only recommended for individuals who are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, have had known contact with another person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or who have traveled to specific locations identified by the CDC.
