Controlling the spread of COVID-19 will require all of us actively working to prevent it. Practice everyday preventive behaviors. Stay home when sick. Cover coughs and sneezes. Frequently wash your hands (at least 20 seconds) with soap and water. Disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources hotline is available 24/7, toll-free at 1-800-887-4304 to provide accurate information about COVID-19, the risk to the public and the state’s response. 

Marshall Health and Mountain Health Network offer a clinic-based testing model for COVID-19, which means the COVID-19 test is available to patients in most of our primary care clinics. A map of testing locations in other areas of West Virginia is available at

Non-insured patients will be billed for COVID-19 tests. Insurance will be billed for those with coverage. The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration COVID-19 Uninsured Program no longer accepts claims for COVID-19 testing and treatment (effective 3/22/22) or claims for vaccine administration (effective 4/5/22). Any individual without insurance will be responsible for the entire cost of COVID-19 testing. Additional information is available at
