Free COVID-19 Testing Locations
All Mississippians can be tested for COVID-19 free of charge at regularly scheduled county health department locations.
Anyone can be tested for COVID-19 at an MSDH site if they have COVID-19 symptoms, or if they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
There is no charge for testing.
You may also call 601-496-7200 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Saturday) to schedule a test.
Please schedule a testing appointment ahead of time. You can also make an appointment at the testing site, but same-day openings may not be available.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should isolate yourself while you wait for test results to prevent the possible spread of disease.
If you test positive, you should isolate at home. If your symptoms are severe, consider immediate treatment, and contact your doctor or other healthcare provider.
For some special COVID-19 testing events, testing is performed by the Mississippi Public Health Laboratory (MPHL). If you were tested at a Mississippi State Department of Health testing event and were told that your test sample would be processed by the MPHL, then you can get a printed copy of your test results, if needed, by following the instructions below.
