COVID-19 Testing at Phelps Health
Do you need a COVID-19 test for any of the following reasons?
- To confirm a COVID-19 diagnosis
- For travel purposes
- For back-to-school or back-to-work
At Phelps Health, we are able to test patients for COVID-19 at our Immediate Care clinics in Rolla and Waynesville. No appointment necessary. Open 7 days a week.
Our Immediate Care clinics can order antibody testing (to check for past infections of COVID-19) during your visit, but you will be sent to one of our labs for the blood test. You also can contact your primary care physician or provider for antibody testing.
COVID-19 At-Home Tests: If your at-home test shows that you are positive for COVID-19, contact your doctor or healthcare provider for treatment options.
Free testing resources:
State at-home test portal (PCR): Health.Mo.Gov/test

Reminder: Always call your primary care physician or provider first. Your doctor’s office may be able to help.
Monitoring Update: COVID-19 at-home test kits are available for purchase at local pharmacies.
Hospitals and health systems, including Phelps Health, continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19. For more information about cases in the state, visit Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
