HIV/STI Testing

Every year millions of people are diagnosed with HIV and STIs in the United States.

Changes in Schedule and Procedures During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Our first concern is to keep those most at risk of coronavirus complications safe from infections. We are currently offering testing by appointment only (with the exception of the Dayton Medical Center drop-in hours) and at a limited number of locations. Please see the revised list of testing locations and hours below.

If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms such as a cough or shortness of breath, please do not come to our offices for HIV/STI testing.

Some alternatives to in-person testing:

  • Order a free home HIV test kit from OHIV.org. (Restrictions apply, limited quantities available.)
  • Chat with one of our HIV/STI experts at 1-800-332-2437 or OHIV.org about sexual health concerns.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms that may indicate you have an STI, call one of our medical offices to review your symptoms over the phone.
  • Call the Ohio COVID-19 Help Line at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH open seven days a week, 9 AM – 8 PM.

Staying Healthy in the Time of COVID-19

You are #Healthworthy! In normal times, that means you participate in regular HIV/STI testing to protect yourself and your sexual partners. During the COVID-19 pandemic, you may need to make different decisions to maintain your health, especially if you are at risk for complications resulting from the coronavirus. That might mean delaying your routine HIV/STI check and refreshing your knowledge of safer-sex practices. You can learn more about safer sex options at OHIV.org or by calling our HIV/STI experts at 1-800-332-2437.

Regarding HIV/STI Testing

The majority of new sexually transmitted infections could be stopped with the proper care and treatment. STIs, in particular, are more common than most people think, especially among young, sexually active individuals.

That’s why our diverse HIV/STI prevention staff are located throughout Ohio.
