How to get tested

SIH asks individuals to reserve a test time online or call the SIH COVID-19 Hotline at 844-988-7800, M-F from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., to speak with a staff member to reserve a test time.

SIH staff wearing personal protective equipment will perform specimen collection, or nasal swabs, for COVID-19, flu and other respiratory illnesses through the driver's side or passenger side window. Patients will not have to leave their cars.

Once you receive testing

  • Samples take 2-3 days to process (but could take longer depending on volume).
  • At the time of scheduling your appointment you are required to enter your cell phone number. By doing so, you authorize SIH to send a text message of your test result (positive or negative) to the cell phone number entered.
