Several ways: You could sign up for the paid HealthTap membership and then set up a live consultation with a physician through HealthTap. Otherwise going to a primary care physician would be another common way to coordinate basic lab testing.

Very complicated: This type of situation warrants reaching out to his PCP or urologist for coordinating care. If otherwise unable to reach either resource seek and in person urgent care visit. If he is passing clots, he may have to go to the ER to flush out his bladder to prevent obstruction.

Healthy individuals : Healthy individuals, in general, are likely to have better outcomes with coronavirus. It's not a matter of being an athlete ... as in fact, there are many "unhealthy" athletes out there.
