COVID-19 Testing

Due to increased testing demand, Covenant re-opened the drive-thru COVID-19 testing center on Friday, October 1.  The center is located at the corner of Tittabawassee and Bay Road in Saginaw.

All patients who need testing for one of the below reasons should use this location only:

  • Currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have had a recent, known COVID-19 exposure
  • Proof of testing needed for upcoming travel

Patients who do not have COVID-19 symptoms and need a COVID-19 test prior to a procedure or surgery (pre-authorization) should visit any of the other laboratory locations listed below.

All COVID-19 testing performed at Covenant requires a physician order.

If you believe you need a test, please call your physician for an order for testing or call our Covenant Care Connect hotline at 989.583.3135 to be screened for an order.
