Where to Get Tested
Contact your doctor’s office or clinic. They will decide whether you should be tested. If you think you might have COVID-19, be sure to call before you visit a clinic and let them know. They will tell you next steps so you don’t get others sick at the facility. If you don't have a doctor call 211 for a list of providers near you.

Seeing Appropriate Care
Individuals who feel very ill should seek appropriate care. If it is an emergency, call 911. For information on when to seek emergency medical attention you can use the CDC Self-Checker tool. If it is not an emergency but you feel sick enough to need a medical appointment, call your primary care provider. If you don’t have a doctor, call 211 for a list of providers near you

Public Health Testing at CHD
Over the past three weeks, demand for COVID-19 testing has increased greatly across the state and nation. This has directly impacted the laboratories ability to process and release results as expected. Due to this significant delay, the Center for Human Development will be temporarily suspending testing and testing clinics. Testing will be limited to individuals identified through investigations or individuals that meet Oregon State Public Health Lab criteria. We are currently still experiencing significant delays in receiving lab results on previous tests. Notifications will be made as quickly as possible. Testing is still being offered throughout the community. If you are interested in being tested we encourage you to contact your primary care provider. Contact Public Health at 541-962-8800 (option 8) if you have questions.
