COVID–19 Test Scheduling and Sites

The RIDOH has developed a COVID-19 Testing Program specifically to provide testing services for Rhode Island PreK-12 public and private school students, faculty and staff.  

The phone number for this service is 844-857-1814.  It is posted on the RIDOH website .  This service line is only for PreK-12 students, faculty and staff who have symptoms, have been identified as a close contact of a positive case, or are a classmate of a positive case. Services are available in multiple languages.

Parents, guardians, faculty/staff members, and students older than 16 will be able to call the PreK-12 COVID-19 test scheduling service seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. to schedule an appointment.

After the test is scheduled, a  confirmation email with the date, time, and place of your/your child’s appointment will be sent to you.

HERE is the list of testing sites for PreK-12 Rhode Island students, faculty and staff.

Anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms will get two tests. The first test is a rapid test.  The results of this test will be available  before the end of the day. The second test is called a PCR test.  This test result  will be available in 2 days (48 hours).

Anyone who does not have symptoms but had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 will get a PCR test only.

You will receive an email or text when your COVID-19 test results are ready. Results can be accessed at portal.ri.gov/results. You will be asked to enter your personal information and the date you were tested. You will get an error message if you try to access this portal before your results are ready or if the information you enter does not match the record.

If you need help finding your test results, call the K-12 COVID-19 test scheduling service at 844-857-1814 seven days a week between the hours of 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. Please wait 8-12 hours after your test appointment to call about the result of your rapid test and 48 hours to call about the result of your PCR test.   

Lincoln School is following news and information about the spread of coronavirus (COVID–19) in Rhode Island and surrounding areas. This is a quickly changing situation; please check this page regularly for updates.
