50 State Health Department COVID-19 Resources for Patients and Healthcare Providers

0 18,345

Because of the fast movement of the coronavirus COVID-19 in the United States, we have compiled a list of 51 state health department websites and state specific resources specific for COVID-19. These include links to the state health department websites, state specific coronavirus sites, and links to information for healthcare professionals including testing information.   In states where currently available, we provided COVID-19 hotlines to call.

Some states confirm the number cases and tests their state health departments have administered.  several have provided significant resources other states are just getting started.

Starting Monday 3/09/2020 Both Labcorp and Quest medical offices can send office collected specimens for potential COVID-19 patients.  They both have very specific collection criteria so please consult their pages and state that the turn around time can be up to four days to get results.

Please don’t send your patients to either Quest or Labcorp offices as they cannot test your patients at their locations.  We have also included additional COVID-19 resources you may find useful.
