Pre-Registration for DHEC Testing Event
If you’re planning on attending a DHEC Testing Event, we encourage you to pre-register. Please register each participant individually.
Pre-registration is not an appointment. You do not select a specific testing site during the pre-registration process.
After you pre-register for a DHEC Testing Event, you will receive a QR code, which will serve as proof of your pre-registration.
The QR code is good for 14 days at any of the DHEC testing events in South Carolina—meaning, once you pre-register, you can visit any DHEC clinic at any time during their operating hours and receive a test.
Be sure to take the QR code with you to the testing site—whether on your smartphone, or as a computer printout. This code will expire after 14 days.
Benefits to pre-registering for DHEC testing events:
• Testing events are entirely contactless
• Patients get test results faster with email and text notification - usually within 72 hours
• You can request to have your results emailed or mailed. With either method, you can also have a notification texted to you when your result is ready.
• To opt-in or to opt-out of text messaging, text 'start' or 'stop' to 803-806-7331 from your registered mobile phone number.
