COVID-19 testing is now available in Ohio for those who want a test, regardless of whether they are showing symptoms. Increased testing will help public health experts to slow the spread of the virus.
Testing is available at two locations in Madison County: Madison Health, 210 N. Main St., London, and Rocking Horse Community Health Center, 212 N. Main St., London. Both locations require an appointment. Individuals need to self-quarantine while waiting for their results and should not leave their home except to receive medical care.
Currently, tests conducted at Madison Health’s Urgent Care location require a doctor’s order. If your doctor has ordered you a COVID-19 test, they will also provide you with further instructions on how to schedule your appointment and where to go. If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call Madison Health at (740) 845-7400 to utilize their services.
To schedule an appointment at the Madison County office of Rocking Horse Community Health Center, call (740) 845-7286. You do not need a doctor’s order at Rocking Horse Center.
Madison County Public Health (MCPH) does not provide testing. MCPH has worked closely with Madison Health to increase testing capacity in Madison County over the past three months. MCPH does monitor for positive COVID-19 cases seven days a week.
