COVID 19 Testing Sites

COVID-19 Community Test Sites

Testing remains a very important tool in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is now offering two options for  FREE COVID-19 testing. 

First, there are in-person testing events hosted around the state.  Individuals are not required to pre-register or have an appointment, simply show up to one of the events below to receive the test.  A government issued ID is not a requirement for this testing, but having one available onsite speeds up the registration process.   Additional testing sites (with regular or one-time opportunities) may be added as indicators suggest the need for additional testing.  The following events listed below are scheduled as of today.  The latest information can always be found at www.health.mo.gov/communitytest.

Second, Missouri residents may order a free test to be mailed to their Missouri address.  These are PCR kits that are designed for self-collection with a return FedEx shipping container.  Once received back by the laboratory, the result is returned to the person tested (via email provided) within 48 hours.  More information about the at home self-collection kits and a link to order are also found at www.health.mo.gov/communitytest.

In-person Testing Events Scheduled as of July 16,  2021:

Testing Sites (sponsored by MO DHSS)

There is no pre-registration or appointment needed to receive a test.  Having a state issued identification card available at the testing site will speed up the process immensely; however, no identification documents are required. As long as you arrive before the event closes, you will be guaranteed to receive a test. Results will be available as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours from the event.
