List: COVID testing sites in the St. Louis area

The state of Missouri provides several options for residents to get a free COVID-19 test. 5 On Your Side compiled some of the options.

ST. LOUIS — Leaders and health care officials in the St. Louis area continue to stress the importance of getting tested for COVID-19. Whether you’ve been exposed to someone who already tested positive or you’re showing symptoms of illness, health officials say getting tested is key to determining how it’s spreading in the St. Louis community. And that goes for everyone, not just those who aren’t vaccinated.

“Testing is not only for those who are symptomatic, but important for periodic surveillance especially when interacting with vulnerable populations and crowds,” the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Service’s website states, adding that several venues and events now require either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result.

The state of Missouri provides several options for residents to get a free COVID-19 test. The federal government also has options at several pharmacies. And there's also a way to do a test at home, with a cost.
