COVID-19 Resources & Information
At this time, Variety Care is offering take home COVID-19 tests at no-cost to all patients who would like to be tested.
We will continue to offer rapid antigen tests and/or a PCR test to patients who are showing symptoms. To schedule a rapid antigen test or PCR test, please call 405-632-6688.
Please note, if a patient shows symptoms of COVID-19, but tests negative on a rapid antigen test, the provider may request a PCR test.
If a patient tests positive with a rapid antigen test, they will be sent home with at least two at home test kits for every member of their household. The provider may also request that the patient take a home test for the following 1-2 days to verify test results. An additional cost may be associated with the PCR test.
When you arrive to a location for testing, please park in the designated COVID-19 Test parking spot. Remain in your vehicle and call the phone number listed on the sign by the parking spot. Our staff will come to your vehicle and test you in the parking lot. You will receive a phone call with your test results and next steps within a few days.
