So you are having covid symptoms?

Sorry to hear you are feeling sick and we hope you feel better soon! Since you have one or more symptoms that are on the list of symptoms for COVID, OHA requires that you do one of 3 things. 

Here are your current options (see below for details):

1. Get a COVID test at a facility

2. See a healthcare provider

3. Quarantine at home

We list some options and details for different places below as a helpful resource. If you have questions or difficulty please reach back out to your callout contact and we’ll help you out!

1. Get a COVID test at a facility

Please note: rapid tests (antigen, PCR or NAAT) usually have an out of pocket cost, but standard PCR tests are typically free but slower to get results.

We do not necessarily recommend one place over another, but here are a list of places that staff have successfully used in the past. If you do not have insurance, Curative and COVID Clinic typically have a no cost option for testing. There are many other places in the area – some are walk-in but others require appointments so check.

Information on some testing sites:

  • Center for COVID Control

Several locations in Portland Metro area

https://www.centerforcovidcontrol.org/locations

Walk-in testing but they say to call before you go to confirm location and testing.

  • Curative

Many locations in Portland Metro area including the Oregon Convention Center

Click on the Book Now button on the left on the main page. On the booking appointment page, just type in Portland Oregon under location and it will list next available appointments and locations. Some sites accept walk-ins but confirm before you go.

Portland location:

Scroll down and click on “Book your COVID-19 Test Now.” You have to select type of test. Most people choose the first “no cost to patient – diagnostic COVID-19 PCR Test (result generally in 2+ days, not for travel). You can choose a cost option but that will be out of pocket and not typically covered by insurance.

2. See a healthcare provider

You can contact your PCP but this isn’t always the fastest option. Most people go to an urgent care or immediate care place.

We do not necessarily recommend one place over another, but here are a list of places that staff have successfully used in the past. Some places like Zoomcare will do a virtual visit. If you have insurance, make sure you have coverage for that location. If you do not have insurance, Zoomcare offers virtual visits for $85.
