COVID-19 Testing for Cooper Patients

At this time, Cooper’s lab is not running tests for COVID-19.

However, we are expediting testing for Cooper patients who meet testing criteria and have an order for COVID-19 testing from a Cooper provider. We have created a convenient drive-up location for those Cooper patients to visit to collect samples for testing.
