Getting tested for COVID-19 continues to be a critical public health tool in limiting the spread of the virus in our communities. Whether or not you are experiencing symptoms, CVPH is one of several providers ensuring access to testing across the region so that you can get the answers you need. If you choose to get tested at the CVPH COVID-19 Testing Site, please keep in mind that an order from your health care provider is required and your insurance will be billed. With a large increase in demand for COVID-19 testing, please expect test results to take up to 3-4 days.

COVID-19 Testing Site: 23 Hammond Lane

NEW (Updated 1/13/22): To help reduce wait times and traffic, COVID-19 testing at our Hammond Lane testing site will be by appointment only beginning Monday, January 17. Anyone requiring a COVID-19 test, with a health care provider order, should call (518) 314-3278 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. seven days a week to schedule an appointment.

Members of the community requiring a COVID-19 test can get one at 23 Hammond Lane in Plattsburgh. Testing is available 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for symptomatic and asymptomatic (those not experiencing symptoms) patients.

Upon arrival, patients seeking a test should park in one of the spaces designated for COVID-19 testing and remain in their vehicle. Once parked, the patient must call (518) 314-3278 to check in. A representative will call you back to let you know that you can go in at the Employee Services entrance. Once inside, staff will help direct you to a testing room. Please remember to wear a mask at all times while inside the building. Children getting tested can be accompanied by one parent or guardian.

We recommend patients bring their health insurance card with them when they get tested. Results will be sent to the ordering provider. Patients may also get their results through

Individuals with and without symptoms may be tested, including those who:

  • Require a test to return to school.
  • Need a test to visit a loved one in a nursing home.
  • Have an occupational requirement (hairdressers, barbers, etc.).
  • Are subject to precautionary or mandatory quarantine (by the health department).
  • Directly interact with the public while working (health care worker, first responder or other essential worker).

Pre-procedure Testing

All patients requiring a COVID-19 test result prior to their scheduled procedure should go to the first floor lab near the main lobby entrance at CVPH Main Campus, located at 75 Beekman Street in Plattsburgh. No appointment is necessary. The lab is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The provider conducting the procedure will notify the patient if a COVID-19 test will be required beforehand. Patients needing additional testing ahead of their procedure, such as blood work, can also get that done at the same time as the COVID-19 test.

Pre-procedure COVID-19 tests are conducted four days in advance. Results will be available through the ordering provider. As a reminder: guidelines from the New York State Department of Health and Clinton County Department of Health state that patients requiring a pre-procedure COVID-19 test should quarantine for the time period between their test and their procedure.
