COVID-19 testing at Malta Med Emergent Care
COVID-19 Testing at Malta Med Emergent Care
We offer PCR (non-rapid) COVID-19 tests. A provider order is required, and tests are reserved for people who:
- Are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms OR
- Have recently been exposed to COVID-19 OR
- Need proof of a negative test result to return to work or school.
If you already have a provider order, the scheduling team at Saratoga Hospital will be in contact with you to set up a testing appointment at Saratoga Hospital's COVID-19 testing tent. For questions on your scheduled appointment, please call 518-587-2397.
If you do not have a provider order for a COVID-19 test, come to Malta Med Emergent Care. You will be seen by one of our providers, who will conduct a screening. If appropriate, an order will be written and a test will be given.
Getting your test results
If your test results come back positive, you will receive a phone call from the ordering provider. Malta Med Emergent Care does not call patients with negative test results. Most tests are sent to DrugScan for processing (click here to learn how to access your test results) or to request a copy of their results from our medical records department.
