COVID-19 Testing Information

Should You be Tested for COVID-19?  The CDC recommends that anyone with any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 be tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection.

COVID-19 Testing at SMH 

The hospital’s COVID-19 Testing is performed Curbside at Urgent Care Monday-Friday- 1435 Burton Street.  Appointments ARE REQUIRED.

You can schedule your appointment online by clicking on this link or visiting SheridanUrgentCare.com and clicking on “Reserve Your Spot.”

Or you may call to schedule your COVID-19 test:  307.672.1004. Please leave only ONE message and we will return call as quickly as possible in the order it was received.

If needed, hospital staff can help you select the most appropriate test for your needs during registration. Our goal is to provide you your results the same day, but this is dependent upon volume.  For instance, during a large wave of covid infections, the number of people requiring testing may sometimes exceed the number of tests that can be run in one day.

When you arrive for your testing appointment, please park on the west side of the Urgent Care lot and remain in your vehicle.  Call the phone number on the sign posted in the Urgent Care parking lot and a healthcare professional will come to your vehicle to perform your test.

The quickest way to obtain your COVID-19 Test results is through our Patient Portal – MySheridanHealth.  If you are not already enrolled, find out how to sign-up by clicking here.
