A staff nurse with the Alabama Department of Public Health gives a coronavirus test to a woman at a drive-thru testing site at the Houston County Farm Center in July.

COVID-19 testing has become less elusive since the beginning of the pandemic and most providers are now conducting testing at their clinics.

With most primary care private providers, you must be an established patient to be tested for COVID-19.

The Alabama Department of Public Health has a list of clinics that regularly test non-established patients, mostly by appointments. It is recommended to call ahead before visiting a clinic to be tested so that providers can prepare for your arrival and to ensure they have swabs for COVID-19 testing.

County health departments halted testing in January to refocus efforts on testing, but some are resuming clinics in February. Due to limited staffing in this district and COVID-19 vaccination clinics, testing is only being provided on alternate weeks in Coffee and Houston counties at this time. No COVID-19 retesting will be done.

Below is a list of Wiregrass clinics, listed by city in alphabetical order, conducting COVID-19 tests for non-established patients:
