Did your doctor already refer you to Legacy for a COVID-19 test?

If your doctor has already referred you to Legacy for a COVID-19 test, Legacy will call you to schedule an appointment.

Testing restrictions

Due to a national shortage of testing supplies we regret that we cannot provide COVID-19 tests to everyone who wants one. Legacy Health is unable to provide COVID-19 testing for any of the reasons listed below:

  • No COVID-19 testing for pre-travel clearance. 
  • No COVID-19 testing for general workplace clearance unless there is an exposure or symptoms.
  • No COVID-19 testing for possible COVID-19 exposures that do not involve household or intimate contacts.

If you are in need of COVID-19 testing for any of the above reasons, please visit our partners at Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care. Save your spot online at a designated testing center and receive results in approximately 15 minutes. 

Are you a Legacy Medical Group patient?

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please schedule a video visit with your primary care doctor.

 

Not a Legacy Medical Group patient?

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please schedule a virtual visit to be evaluated by a Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care provider prior to your COVID-19 test.

About COVID-19 antibody testing

A variety of antibody tests for COVID-19 are now available for people with a doctor's order to be screened.

Important to know:

  • It is not yet known if having the COVID-19 antibody protects you against future COVID-19 infection
  • These antibody tests do not tell you if you have an active COVID-19 infection

Please contact your provider with questions about antibody testing. If you’ve decided antibody testing is right for you, contact Legacy–GoHealth.
