In May 2020, DHEC announced a statewide testing strategy to gain a better understanding of the prevalence of COVID-19 among all South Carolinians. Expansive testing helps us to quickly identify hot spots, catch outbreaks before they spread, and indicate where resources are most needed. Learn more about the South Carolina Statewide Testing Plan for COVID-19 here.
The list below is intended to help provide information about the known locations of various COVID-19 test sampling sites and does not constitute endorsement by DHEC. There may be additional sites that offer test sampling that are not included. The status of listed sites is subject to change (may no longer perform COVID-19 testing services).
Interested in organizing a COVID-19 testing event? Learn about planning a community testing event here. Please email Acc-Testing@dhec.sc.gov for more information, or to request a change to a current event or testing site.
Richland County Community Paramedics are offering in-home COVID-19 testing for those residents who are unable to access alternative testing such as pharmacy or drive-through options. These calls for service are screened through the 911 call center Monday-Friday 8-5. For medical emergencies, dial 911 any time.
