YKHC COVID-19 Testing Criteria

Updated June 19, 2021

Regular COVID-19 testing of unvaccinated people allows positive cases to be identified early and is an important tool to reduce the spread of the virus.

Fully vaccinated people should be tested only if they have symptoms. Symptoms of COVID-19 include, but are not limited to, cough, shortness of breath, chills, diminished sense of taste or smell, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, headache, muscle/joint aches, nausea, runny nose and sore throat.

In Bethel, walk-in COVID-19 testing is available on the first floor of the hospital between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Patients should enter through the main hospital doors (not the emergency room entrance) and indicate they are interested in a COVID test. “Close contacts” and people showing symptoms of COVID-19 can schedule testing by calling 543-6949. 

In villages, please call your local clinic.
