Testing is open to all Mississippians, but before visiting a county health department or other testing site, you must first be screened by speaking with a UMMC clinician to determine your likelihood of COVID-19 infection or exposure. This can be done by calling 601-496-7200 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Saturday) or completing the UMMC COVID-19 online patient screening form. If the clinician determines that your likelihood of infection is high, you will receive an appointment for drive-through testing.
Mississippi K-12 public, private and parochial teachers and school staff can be tested by appointment only, regardless of whether they show symptoms or have had close contact with someone positive for the virus, at the West Street Farmers Market in Jackson or at any one-day collection site coordinated by MSDH and UMMC. Testing is Monday-Saturday from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. at the West Street Farmers Market, corner of West and Woodrow Wilson Avenue, or 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at one-day sites.
