Covid-19 Testing

COVID-19 TESTING

We were one of the first Covid-19 testing sites in Tucson and continue to serve the community with active virus testing and antibody testing. Escalera Health does not currently offer Covid-19 vaccinations. 

Scheduled COVID-19 Testing Available

Escalera Health offers testing (UTM/E-Swab) for COVID-19 by appointment only.


Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM Closed Daily 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

NO COVID TESTING ON TUESDAYS

Designated parking spaces are available on the south side of the building (look for the orange cones).

Please call 520-209-1919 to schedule and have your insurance information available when scheduling. All patients (symptomatic or not) must have a scheduled appointment and will be tested outside at one of the designated parking spaces. This testing process takes approximately 3-5 minutes total. We will reach out by phone within 3-5 business days with the test results and medical treatment options if necessary. 

Escalera Health will bill directly through your insurance provider. Please verify with your insurance for coverage verification. Self-pay options are available to patients without insurance, social security number is required. 

Antibody Testing

Covid-19 antibody testing, also known as serology or immune response testing, accesses previous exposure to Covid-19 even if symptoms were never experienced.

Antibody testing, taken as a blood draw sample, is performed inside the clinic, by appointment only. We will reach out by phone with the results within 2-3 business days. 

This testing is not used to determine or validate the effectiveness of a COVID-19 vaccine. Antibody testing is available only to patients who are not currently experiencing symptoms and have not experienced symptoms within 10 days. Tests do not detect current Covid-19 infections, as it can take 1–3 weeks for the body to make antibodies.
