Do you need a COVID-19 test? 

​Changes to ALL COVID-19 Testing at Naval Hospital Rota will started on Wednesday 5 January.
A second testing site at the (old) Flix Theater is now open to separate testing people WITH symptoms versus people with NO symptoms.

This change is due to the recent increase of positive COVID-19 cases and testing requirements. This is also being done to increase infection control amongst people waiting to be tested.

The Two Testing Sites

  • If you have ANY symptoms you MUST be tested at the COVID Clinic at NH Rota (entrance to clinic is across from housing office)
  • Testing is available for any eligible symptomatic person, you do not need to see a provider prior to requesting a test.
  • If you have symptoms and would like to be seen by a provider please contact the appointment line or Medical Home Port to request an appointment first.
