COVID-19 Testing Information

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends that anyone with COVID-19 symptoms be tested. The symptoms of COVID-19 include: fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, chills, runny nose or stuffy nose, sore throat, headache, or diarrhea.

If you think you may have symptoms, first call your healthcare provider. If your provider thinks you should be tested but is unable to offer a test at their health care facility, your provider will provide a referral to be tested at test site near you. An appointment is necessary.
