COVID-19 Testing Options Throughout South Carolina

Due to demand caused by the surge of delta and omicron variants, there may be longer-than-average wait times at MUSC Health's COVID-19 testing sites. In addition, the labs that process COVID-19 tests are operating at or above capacity. Patients should expect their COVID-19 test results within 48-96 hours of testing.

If it has been more than 48 hours since your test, you can check its status. Please note that our COVID-19 help line cannot provide testing results.

No referral is needed for testing at any MUSC Health site. Thank you for your continued patience as we work together to navigate this challenging time.
