COVID-19 Testing Available at All Urgent Care Locations
Sarasota Memorial Urgent Care Centers are now providing COVID-19 testing for patients of all ages. Patients must first be evaluated by the on-duty physician, who will order a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) for COVID-19, if symptoms warrant it; NAATs are viral tests for current COVID-19 infection. Staff will immediately collect a specimen and will notify the patient of the test results by phone within 24 to 48 hours.
Note that COVID-19 testing at SMH Urgent Care Centers is not free. Patients will be billed for the urgent care visit and the COVID-19 test. For insured patients, your insurance provider will be billed for these services. Patients without insurance or who prefer to self-pay can pay the standard urgent care prompt-pay visit fee ($150), along with an additional $100 for the testing and lab processing.
For information on free COVID-19 testing in our area, please visit the Sarasota Department of Health website at sarasotahealth.org or call the Sarasota County COVID-19 Call Center (941-861-2883) for guidance.

Is it safe to visit an Urgent Care Center?
To ensure that our Urgent Care Centers can continue to safely treat sick or injured patients, our teams are following strict infection control procedures and have implemented new processes to screen patients before they enter the facilities. If a patient has flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms or has had exposure to someone with COVID-19 patient, he/she is asked to don a mask and staff inside are notified so they can put on necessary protective equipment. Upon entry, the patient is immediately taken to an exam room to prevent exposure to any other patients.
