Coronavirus Testing

COVID-19 tests are quick, easy, and free.

Widespread testing provides a more accurate picture of how many cases exist in our community. It allows us to identify cases and increase our understanding of COVID-19 community transmission so we can be prepared in stopping an outbreak.

Who should get tested?

You can get tested in the following situations:

Regardless of Vaccination Status:

  • If you work in a healthcare setting, including hospital, clinics, skilled nursing facilities, or other healthcare settings.
  • If you had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you live in a congregate setting, such as a homeless shelter or college dorm
  • If you had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you work in a high-density workplace, such as a factory
  • If you are having COVID-19 symptoms
  • If you had any close contact with someone with COVID-19

If you're unvaccinated:

  • If you work somewhere where you are at high risk of encountering someone with COVID-19, such as congregate living spaces, public transit, restaurants, and retail.

Visit the CDC Website and CDPH Website to read the full guidance.
