Alternative options for COVID-19 testing outside Cleveland Clinic

Due to a steady growth of COVID-19 as well as other respiratory illnesses in Ohio, we have experienced an increased demand for both symptomatic and asymptomatic COVID-19 tests.

To help ease demand at our emergency departments and Express Care facilities, we encourage you to direct patients, when clinically appropriate, to alternate testing options and sites.

Patients in Ohio can visit the Ohio Department of Health website for a map and contact information of free testing sites. Also, self-testing kits from the State of Ohio are available free of charge at local libraries and for sale at most retail pharmacies. The availability of test kits may be limited due to supplies.
