Limited Covid testing in Providence St. Patrick Hospital's Emergency Department

Like most hospital systems across the country, Providence is experiencing a shortage of Covid testing supplies. We are reserving our limited testing supply for the most urgent needs while our supply chain team works with our vendors and public health partners to obtain additional testing supplies. Visitors to our emergency department will not be tested unless they are admitted to the hospital. We are asking those with mild symptoms to isolate at home and seek care from their primary care provider or urgent care clinic before coming to the emergency department.
