You can be tested for COVID-19 by local medical providers statewide, or at free drive-through sites held at various locations around the state. Some providers may require that you have qualifying symptoms before testing.

Drive-Through Testing

One-day drive-through testing locations are offered daily for individuals determined to be high risk for having COVID-19, either at the Mississippi Fairgrounds in Jackson, or regularly at other selected sites across the state. These events are run by MSDH and the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC). Testing at these locations is free of charge.

Before You Visit

Before visiting a drive-through testing site, you must first be screened by speaking with a UMMC clinician to determine your likelihood of COVID-19 infection. This can be done through the C Spire Health smartphone app, the quickest and easiest method, or by phone. If the clinician determines that your likelihood of infection is high, you will receive a next-day appointment for drive-through testing.
