All Mississippians can be tested for COVID-19 free of charge at regularly scheduled county health department locations.

Who Can Be Tested

Anyone can be tested for COVID-19 at an MSDH site, provided that:

Schedule Your Visit to Avoid Waiting

Because of high demand for testing, please schedule an appointment ahead of time and provide some information about your symptoms. You can also make an appointment at the testing site, but same-day openings may not be available. To schedule an appointment, call 601-496-7200 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Saturday) or complete the UMMC COVID-19 online patient screening form.

After You Are Tested

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should isolate yourself while you wait for test results. If you have a sample taken at one of these locations, it is essential to remain at home and away from other family members as much as possible to prevent the possible spread of disease.

Printed test results from selected MSDH testing events

For some special COVID-19 testing events, testing is performed by the Mississippi Public Health Laboratory (MPHL). If you were tested at a Mississippi State Department of Health testing event and were told that your test sample would be processed by the MPHL, then you can get a printed copy of your test results, if needed, by following the instructions below.

Free Daily Testing in Jackson

Testing is available Monday through Saturday at the old West Street Farmers Market in Jackson at the corner of West Street and Woodrow Wilson Avenue. Due to high demand, please schedule your test ahead of time.
