COVID-19 PCR Testing: Choose The Option That's Right For You
Visit a select BioServeLabs location to collect your sample the same day if you are symptom-free and have no known exposure to COVID-19.
If you have symptoms or a known recent exposure and need testing immediately, BioServeLabs COVID-19 PCR testing is available through pharmacy drive-thrus, urgent care centers, and healthcare providers.
Many of our BioServeLabs locations are accepting appointments and walk-ins for COVID-19 testing (for those who are symptom-free and have no known exposure to COVID-19). You must purchase the test online before visiting a BioServeLabs location.
Only purchase if you are symptom free and have not been exposed to anyone with COVID-19.

COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Infection with the virus can range from being asymptomatic to a life-threatening respiratory illness. Infection has been detected globally and in all 50 states. Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell are all symptoms of COVID-19.
COVID-19 can present with severe illness in individuals of any age and without any previous health problems, but the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 increases with age, with older adults at the highest risk. Having underlying medical conditions may also increase one’s risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
