Testing for COVID-19
If you develop symptoms such as fever, cough, and/or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19, stay home and call your doctor. If you are older, have severe underlying medical conditions, or are immunocompromised, call your doctor early, even if your illness is mild. In an emergency call 911. Your doctor will determine if you have signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and order the test if needed.                               

If you do not have a doctor and have questions, symptoms, or may have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, call Upstate University Hospital's Triage Line at 315.464.3979 and you will be advised about testing. The line is open 7am to 11pm each day.
