Do we have any hospital that can test a person for the cov-19?

Sure: Tests are only for suspected COVID-19 patients and their contacts. Three months into the global outbreak, the US Centers for Disease Control says state labs will now be able to run tests. Until now, only the main CDC lab was running tests in the US. Any hospital with an ER or intensive care unit should be able to collect the samples (nose swab, sputum, and blood) and send it to the state or CDC.
