AT-HOME TESTS

Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order four free at-home COVID-⁠19 tests. The tests are completely free. Orders will usually ship in 7-12 days. Click here to order your tests now so you have them when you need them. You may also call or check your pharmacy’s website for their at-home COVID-19 test kit availability. Click here for directions on using your at-home testing kit. 

Please check expiration dates on at-home test kits before use. Some test kits have extended expiration dates. Click here for more information.

If you have a positive at-home test, please follow these directions and contact your county health department. Many county health departments now have online portals to report positive at-home test results. Visit their website for more information.  If you do not have any symptoms or you have only minor symptoms such as stuffy nose or mild sore throat, please monitor your condition at home; you may not need to be seen by a provider. If you have any questions or concerns about your symptoms, please reach out to your provider. You do not need an alternative test to verify a positive result unless your employer requires it.

If you are symptomatic (showing symptoms of COVID-19), please schedule testing at a Hudson Headwaters primary care office or visit an urgent care location. Testing will include a visit and evaluation by a provider.

If you are not yet a Hudson Headwaters patient, COVID-19 and antibody testing is available with a brief visit with one of our providers. This visit can be within a health center, urgent care, or in some cases, a telehealth appointment.

PLEASE CALL your Hudson Headwaters health center if you are experiencing symptoms, have been in close contact with a confirmed case, and/or have recently traveled to a country with an outbreak. Be ready to explain your symptoms, travel history and/or if you were exposed to coronavirus. Luckily, most patients only experience mild symptoms and will recover. For public safety, we strongly encourage home management when appropriate.

FAQs
Do I need to get tested? 
It is important to get tested if you feel ill and/or have had close contact with someone who is either COVID-19 positive or suspected positive. You should also get tested if you have attended a recent protest or other large gatherings, or have recently traveled to a high-risk region, even if you are not experiencing symptoms.

How will I access my test results?
Log in to the Hudson Headwaters Patient Portal to view your test results online. If you are not yet registered for the patient portal, please create your account before your test. Please note: If you choose not to use the patient portal, notification of your test results may be delayed. 

Is there a cost?
Charges may apply and depend on your insurance. Contact your health insurance carrier for more information.
