Testing

The Oregon Health Authority recommends COVID-19 viral testing for all people with new symptoms consistent with COVID-19, regardless of severity. The OHA and Josephine County Public Health recommend that all people with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 call their primary care provider before their visit to discuss their illness and testing availability.

Tests for COVID-19 have significant limitations. Testing is most useful in patients with COVID-19 symptoms. Testing of people without symptoms is most useful in COVID-19 case, cluster and outbreak investigations. Antibody testing is not recommended. People should call their primary care provider to discuss necessity and testing availability.

Several primary care provider offices in Josephine County also offer COVID-19 testing for established patients ranging from Antigen to PCR platforms with results ranging from same-day to a few days. Patients should check with their primary care provider.


Josephine County Community Testing

Josephine County Public Health

COVID-19 testing is now available at the Josephine County Public Health Department.  Call (541) 474-5325.

715 NW Dimmick St.
Grants Pass, OR 97526

Hours 

  • Monday-Thursday (Except holidays): 8-11:30 a.m. and 1-4:30 p.m.

Appointments are required. Call Public Health at (541) 474-5325 to schedule an appointment. If possible, you will fill out paperwork before coming to your appointment. Upon arrival, do not come into the building to help ensure the safety of other patients in the building. Call from a mobile phone to alert staff that you have arrived. Once all the paperwork is completed, a nurse will meet you outside to complete the testing.

Two types of tests are available. A simple nasal swab is used for both tests, and results are available in about 15 minutes. Neither test tells which variant of COVID-19 a person has, if any. To determine the presence of a variant, a separate nasal swab is sent to the Oregon State Public Health Lab. 

  • Abbott Binax NOW Antigen Card
    • This is best for people who have been having symptoms for 1-7 days or who were exposed to someone with COVID-19 3-7 days prior to the test.
  • Abbott ID NOW PCR Machine
    • This test can be used even if the individual tested does not have symptoms and does not have a known exposure to someone else with COVID-19.
