COVID-19 testing for groups

If you represent a workplace, school, or other group settings where there are a number of individuals needing COVID-19 testing, we have additional ways to partner with you.  We welcome anyone to utilize our e-visits and individual clinics but can often provide a better & more consistent experience for your team with other services.  We may be able to arrange for testing at your site or partner on the best timing and process for the smooth completion of testing at one of our clinic sites.

To help us better understand your needs and how we may partner, please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

  1. Key contact person and email/phone number;
  2. Information about your group (size, any special needs); and
  3. Reason for COVID-19 testing needs.
