Avita is offering COVID-19 testing at our Bellville and Ontario Walk-In Clinics, as well as our testing sites at Galion and Ontario Hospitals. Avita’s COVID-19 test is a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) point-of-care diagnostic test that uses a nasal sample to determine if the patient has COVID-19 infection. Results are available via Avita’s MyChart.
The Ontario Walk-In Clinic is open daily from 8:00am – 8:00pm at 600 Richland Mall in Ontario. The Bellville Walk-In Clinic is open daily from 8:00am – 8:00pm at 987 State Route 97 W in Bellville. These clinics provide urgent care services and no appointments are needed.
Our testing sites at Galion and Ontario Hospitals require a physician order and appointment. The hospital testing sites are open at the following times:
Tuesday & Thursday 8:00am – 4:30pm
Monday, Wednesday, & Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm
You can request a self-pay rapid test for $100 without an order by calling 419-462-3437 during normal business hours for an appointment at one of the testing sites.
Get Tested at Home!
At-home COVID-19 test kits are available at Avita Ontario Outpatient Pharmacy. These at-home tests are covered by most insurance plans. Depending on your plan, you may be able to receive the test kits at no out-of-pocket, up-front costs. Other plans may require you to pay out-of-pocket and then submit your receipt for reimbursement. Purchase quantity and reimbursement limits apply. Call 567-307-7570 or visit Avita Ontario Pharmacy for more information.

Out-of-Hospital Treatment Options for COVID-19
Oral Antiviral Treatments
Avita is offering two oral antivirals, Pfizer’s Paxlovid and Merck’s molnupiravir, for the treatment of COVID-19 in certain patients. Individuals who have a positive COVID-19 at-home or lab-confirmed test within the last 5 days, and who have mild to moderate disease with high risk of progressing to severe disease or hospitalization can be considered for treatment. Treatment is self-administered at home as an oral medication(s) taken over the course of five days. Patients must meet specific criteria to qualify for treatment. Because treatment must begin within 5 days of symptom onset, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible after symptoms begin. Contact one of Avita’s primary care providers or walk-in clinics to see if you are eligible and discuss treatment options.
