Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HIV/STD testing and care providers may have changed their hours and/or ability to test and treat sexually transmitted infections. So if you’re looking for HIV/STD testing, always call the provider in advance, to determine if testing is currently available. To find out more about COVID-19, you can check out the CDC information online.

Most centers will test for HIV for free. Some have rapid testing, which means you can get results on the spot. Other centers also test for other STDs, including Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Herpes. If you don’t get result on your first try, you may need to broaden your search area beyond the preset ten mile radius.
