According to the CDC, people with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
St. Luke’s offers COVID-19 testing to the following high-priority patients, per recommendations from the Idaho State Testing Taskforce:
If you think you may have symptoms of COVID-19, or may have been exposed, please use our self-triage tool in myChart first; it will help you determine what to do next. If you don’t have a myChart account, you can create one online here.
If self-triage indicates that you should be tested, you will be able to schedule an appointment through myChart at one of our designated clinic locations. You may also call our COVID-19 hotline for instructions or assistance at 208-381-9500. Please note: you must have an appointment for testing, we are unable to accept walk-ins.
The following St. Luke’s care facilities are now offering specimen collection for symptomatic patients by appointment only:
Once an appointment is scheduled, patients will be instructed to drive to the clinic at their designated appointment time. Patients will stay in their cars rather than enter the clinic. Our staff will meet patients in the parking lot to complete screening and specimen collection.
Please visit an emergency department if you need treatment for severe symptoms. Please do not call the Emergency Department with general COVID-19 questions.
For any employers or non-St. Luke’s care facilities in need of group testing, please contact your local public health district office; find the list here.
