Covid Testing if you are Asymptomatic or Mildly Symptomatic

If you do not have symptoms associated with COVID, but believe you need a test because of exposure or another reason, you can also schedule a test through Stanford Health Care without a clinician order:

  • If you have a MyHealth at Stanford account, make an appointment through Stanford Health Care's MyHealth website or via the MyHealth mobile app
  • If you don't have a MyHealth at Stanford account, sign up at (indicate no access code) OR call Stanford Health Care at 650-498-9000.
    • Other options for testing include local pharmacies (many Walgreens and CVS stores offer testing).

If you need a test prior to travel, check with your airline; many have partnered with private labs to offer testing with guaranteed return times on results. Note - there may be out-of-pocket expense associated with these 'guarantees', so be sure to inquire.
