COVID-19 Testing Information

Muskegon County residents can get tested to see if they are infected with COVID-19. A COVID-19 test confirms if you have a current infection.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 please seek immediate testing through your primary care physician or schedule your COVID-19 test through your preferred testing location in the links below.

If you are a close contact to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and are having any symptoms it is recommended that you quarantine and call your health care provider to schedule your test. You can also schedule your COVID-19 test at your preferred COVID-19 testing location below

If you are a close contact to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and are not having any symptoms it is still recommended that you quarantine. Some testing locations offer asymptomatic COVID-19 testing, you can find these testing locations below. You may want to schedule an asymptomatic COVID-19 test because you've had close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual, you need a test for travel or another reason. At this time a negative asymptomatic test result will not shorten your 14 day quarantine period.

A COVID-19 antibody test tells you if you had a past infection. If you think you were once infected with COVID-19 but never confirmed with a positive test you can schedule an antibody test through your primary care physician. COVID-19 antibody tests should not be used to diagnose a current infection. COVID-19 antibody tests cannot be used to shorten your 14 day quarantine period. 

Individuals can also call 2-1-1 for COVID-19 testing questions and all other COVID-19 related questions or COVID-19 resource needs at anytime.

COVID-19 TESTING
FAQ

Should I get tested for COVID-19?

 

  • Individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested.

  • Individuals who have had close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who tested positive with COVID-19.

    • Fully vaccinated people with no COVID-19 symptoms do not need to be tested following an exposure to someone with COVID-19.

      • People who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered do not need to get tested following an exposure as long as they do not develop new symptoms.

  • People who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot physically distance as needed to avoid exposure, such as travel, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded or poorly-ventilated indoor settings.

  • People who have been asked or referred to get tested by their healthcare provider, or state, tribal, local, or territorial health department.

 

CDC recommends that anyone with any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. If you get tested because you have symptoms or were potentially exposed to the virus, you should stay away from others pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional.​​​

What does my test result mean?

 

  • If you test positive, know what protective steps to take to prevent others from getting sick.

  • If you test negative, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected. The test result only means that you did not have COVID-19 at the time of testing. Continue to take steps to protect yourself.

  • If you have any questions about your test please call the site your were tested at. ​

If I already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get tested?

 

CDC recommends that anyone with any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. If you get tested because you have symptoms or were potentially exposed to the virus, you should stay away from others pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional. Cases of reinfection of COVID-19 have been reported even though it is rare.
