HIV testing may look different, but it’s still available.
While in-person services may be more limited due to COVID-19, free and low-cost testing is available in most places in some form.
Call ahead to confirm hours and available services. You may need to make an appointment for an in-person test. Ask about mobile or pop-up testing in the community.
Some agencies are offering HIV self-tests to take at home or wherever is convenient. You can also buy these rapid, oral swab tests in most drug stores.
Why I Get Tested
HIV testing is recommended as part of routine healthcare. But that doesn't mean it automatically happens. To know for sure, ask to be tested!
