COVID-19 Tests

UPDATED Dec. 30, 2021: Due to an increase in demand for COVID-19 testing, locations may not be able to see those who arrive less than two hours before closing without an appointment. Norton Immediate Care Centers do not have appointments, but slots for reserving your spot in line to wait at home may be available. Those with no symptoms or mild symptoms are encouraged to seek testing at Norton Healthcare Express Services drive-thru testing location or consult with a health care provider remotely via Norton eCare.

We appreciate your patience during this time of increased demand for testing.

COVID-19 Testing

If you are concerned you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms, please follow these guidelines for testing and care so that we may ensure all patients receive the care they need.

Unvaccinated with no symptoms or mild symptoms

Testing is best if you:

  • Have been exposed to COVID-19 at least five days ago
  • Are not up to date on vaccines or are not vaccinated
  • Have no symptoms or mild symptoms

You also may visit with a Norton eCare provider via telehealth if you would like to speak to a provider about your symptoms prior to being referred for testing.

Vaccinated with mild symptoms and not high risk

If you suspect you were exposed to COVID-19 at least five days ago

  • And have mild symptoms
  • And have no health conditions that make you at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19
  • Then contact your primary care provider to determine whether you need to be tested.

High risk or severe symptoms

If your symptoms are life-threatening, including having difficulty breathing, seek care at the closest hospital emergency department.

Schedule Your Vaccine or Testing

Vaccination appointments are available and strongly recommended for those eligible per state guidelines.
