If so, you can now schedule a COVID-19 test here with no out-of-pocket cost, whether or not you have a testing order from a physician. You will need to answer a few questions about your symptoms and/or exposure as part of the scheduling process.
Those who are asymptomatic and have not been exposed but need a COVID-19 test for some other reason (such as for travel purposes) can also schedule their test here. However, an $80 payment will be required at the time of registration.
Please note: Pre-procedural COVID-19 tests cannot be scheduled online.
Please call 518-897-2462 to schedule a pre-procedural COVID-19 test. Please ask your healthcare provider to fax your testing order to 518-897-2607 before calling.
If your physician's office has provided a testing order, please have them fax it to us at 518-897-2607.
Adirondack Health's COVID testing clinic exclusively performs PCR tests.
A PCR (molecular) test detects genetic material from the virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction, or PCR. A sample is collected by inserting a long nasal swab into your nostril and obtaining a test specimen from the back of your nose.
Adirondack Health's COVID testing clinic is not currently administering antigen (or "rapid") tests.
We run all of our COVID tests on site at Adirondack Medical Center. Test results are typically available within 48 hours.
You can make an appointment with our COVID testing clinic up to one week in advance. Same-day testing appointments are available, but you must pre-register before arriving at the COVID testing clinic.
