For Patients

Need a COVID-19 Test?
You have options.

Whether you prefer drive-up testing, have symptoms and need a test or visiting your local urgent care facility, COVID-19 tests are available locally. Continue reading for more information on testing sites run by Samaritan, and others in the community.

Have COVID-19 Symptoms?

Call Samaritan’s Resource Line at 315-755-3100 and schedule a test at our drive-up testing site. You may also call with questions about COVID-19 symptoms or for more information.

Need a Test For Surgery?

Most hospitals require a COVID-19 test before a surgery or procedure.  Samaritan’s Drive-Up Testing Site can do this regardless of where you are having surgery.  These tests are typically covered by insurance.  To schedule your test, you must call our pre-encounter department at 315-785-5700.

Samaritan surgical patients will be called directly or have an appointment made for them.

Have No Symptoms?

We offer COVID-19 PCR tests through our drive-up testing site with results within 1 to 2 days, please select the $100 option ‘COVID-19 Testing’ appointment type and you will be directed to payment processing.

Please note that NYS has stopped all FREE COVID testing at the Samaritan Drive-Up location as of February 25, 2022.
