Does MainStreet offer testing for COVID-19?

All 16 of our MainStreet locations have obtained a limited supply of test collection kits. We began testing select patients as of Friday, March 20, 2020.

Who are we testing?

We are providing COVID-19 testing to patients who meet any one or more of the following criteria:
  1. The patient or anyone the patient is in close contact with has traveled internationally in the last 14 days. (symptoms and fever not required)
  2. The patient has been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.  (symptoms and fever not required)
  3. The patient has a prescription/referral letter from their doctor  (symptoms and fever not required)
  4. The patient is 50 or older (Fever OR cough OR shortness of breath OR sore throat required)
  5. The patient has a severe underlying medical condition (Fever OR cough OR shortness of breath OR sore throat required)
  6. The patient is immunocompromised (Fever OR cough OR shortness of breath OR sore throat required)
  7. The patient is a health care worker (Fever OR cough OR shortness of breath OR sore throat required)
  8. The patient is a first responder (Fever OR cough OR shortness of breath OR sore throat required)

What else do I need to know to prepare for my visit?

If you come to the clinic for a test, please be sure the front desk gives you a face mask immediately. Please put on the facemask as soon as it is handed to you. You wearing a facemask is the best way to limit any transmission.
We will test you for other types of infection first, then we will test for Coronavirus (COVID-19) if you are a candidate.  It generally takes 1 to 2 weeks to get a result back. In order to process the test and provide you with results, you will also be required to set up an online patient portal account with us. 
We are working to obtain a larger supply of tests. If we do, we will expand the testing criteria and post an update on our Facebook page and website.

Thank you and stay safe!
