The charge is $100 per test. Please bring cash or a credit card with you at the time of testing.
Travel testing is only provided at the St. George Collection Site (Atwood Innovation Plaza).
WILL IT COST ANYTHING?

The Cedar City and Kanab Collection Sites are Utah Department of Health (UDOH) sites and ONLY test those who are symptomatic or exposed. If you are travelling, you must come to St. George.
WHEN WILL I GET MY TEST RESULTS?
PCR testing is not only accurate; it is fast. Your results should be ready by the end of the following business day. This means if you are tested on a Friday or Saturday, you will not receive your results until Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday).
( Just a hint: If you get your test done in the morning, you could potentially – not guaranteed, but potentially – have your results the same day.)
IS THIS A RAPID ANTIGEN TEST?
No, rapid antigen testing is not available at our facility – only CLIA-approved PCR clinical testing. Please go to www.coronavirus.utah.gov/utah-covid-19-testing-locations for rapid antigen testing availability in your area. (We will hand out at home test kits while supplies last.)
