How To Get Tested for COVID-19

Testing for Current Infection or Previous Exposure

We are taking all precautions to keep our campus community—including patients and employees—safe. A facemask is required upon entering the clinic. Your safety and health are our priorities as we help you.

For at-risk populations and those who prefer to stay at home, telehealth appointments are also available, allowing you access to a provider over the phone.

Moffitt Health Center is Offering Several Ways to Test for COVID-19

Testing is available on the Hattiesburg campus only.

*Type of test conducted (rapid swab vs. PCR swab) will be determined at the provider's discretion based on the patient's specific situation.*

There is no charge to patients for COVID-19 testing, regardless of insurance coverage. Patients without insurance will not be billed for COVID-19 testing. 

PCR Swab Test: This test is FDA approved and performed with a swab of your nasal passages to determine if you currently have an active COVID-19 infection. Most results are available in 1-3 days. 

Rapid Swab Test: This test is a new FDA approved molecular immunoassay technology and performed with a swab of your nasal passages to determine if you currently have an active COVID-19 infection. Results are available same day. 

Rapid Surveillance Testing is available for patients with NO symptoms and NO close contact exposure. 

Antibody Blood Test: This FDA approved test determines if you have antibodies to COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2 IgG). This test can show previous infection or exposure to the disease. Most results are available in 1-2 days.
