Below are links where voluntary COVID-19 testing can be scheduled in the counties where prisons are located and the surrounding counties where employees may live.
This list is for informational purposes only and is intended to continue to provide staff with COVID-19-related education, information and resources.
Staff should ask at the time of scheduling a COVID test if there is a cost associated with test. Testing fees are not reimbursable. Staff can also call their health care provider as an additional option for COVID testing.
As a reminder, be sure to follow face barrier, Personal Protective Equipment, and physical distancing procedures.
