All local health care systems offer testing to the community with additional sites listed below.
Should I get tested?
If you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 or you develop symptoms of COVID-19, call your healthcare provider and tell them about your symptoms and your exposure. People at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild.
What should I do while waiting for my results?
If you have symptoms, you and your household members should stay home while waiting for the results of your test. You and your household members do not need to stay home if you are testing in preparation for a medical procedure.
This portal is for the use of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 (case) and people who have been named as contacts to people who have tested positive for COVID-19 (contact).
Through the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing program, residents with cell phones can receive their test results through a text message and complete their own investigation through an automated process. Public health workers will still be available to answer any questions and help with reported outbreaks.
Please register to complete any surveys you have received texts about, add contacts to a current case of COVID-19, and/or to get letters needed for work/school. Surveys and letters are available within the portal for all authorized cases and contacts using your phone number.
Tulsa County testing locations
COVID-19 testing is widely available in Tulsa County, including all local health care systems and many doctors' offices. For testing statewide, visit the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Local hospital emergency rooms should be utilized for emergencies (not COVID testing).
Beginning September 25, households will again be able to order four free tests through COVIDTests.gov. These tests will detect the currently circulating COVID-19 variants. People are encouraged to use the free tests immediately as Americans prepare for travel and gatherings with friends and family throughout the 2023 holiday season.

Find More Locations
CDC launched the COVID-19 Testing Locator website, which will allow consumers to search for free COVID-19 testing sites near them. The locator is part of the CDC Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program, which provides access to COVID-19 testing, focusing on communities at a greater risk of being impacted by the pandemic, people who do not have health insurance, and surge testing in state and local jurisdictions.
Tests offered may include laboratory-based nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs), including polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, and rapid antigen point-of-care (POC) testing. Results are typically provided within 24–48 hours. Testing is available at pharmacies, commercial laboratory sites, community sites, and retail locations.
COVID-19 testing is available at no-cost at ICATT sites to people with or without health insurance who are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. The tests are billed to third-party payers, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurers. People without health insurance do not have to pay for COVID-19 testing at ICATT locations.
