HIV Testing

The only way to find out if you are infected with HIV is to get tested. The Health Department provides anonymous and confidential HIV testing and counseling, with results available during your visit.

To get tested, schedule an appointment by calling one of the county health centers, use our online scheduling tool to schedule an appointment with Larry Smith, B.S., CHES, or visit a testing event listed below.

What happens if my test is positive?

If your test is reactive, you will have to have a blood test to confirm the HIV infection. Health Department staff will provide the confirmatory testing and help link you to medical care and case management services.
