New COVID-19 Test to Treat Sites Now Open in Contra Costa
May 25, 2022: Contra Costa residents can now go to several new test to treat sites around the county to get life-saving prescription medication if they test positive for COVID.
Three new test to treat locations opened last week in Antioch, Brentwood and Pleasant Hill at state sites operated by OptumServe that were previously used only for COVID testing. A state testing site in San Pablo is also expected to begin offering test to treat services by the end of this week.
Patients who go to the sites will take a rapid antigen test and, if positive and symptomatic, they will be connected to a doctor through video. If the doctor deems it medically appropriate, they will prescribe oral antiviral pills for people to take at home over a 5-day period.
Up until this past week, there have been only three test to treat sites in Contra Costa County – all located at CVS pharmacies (two in Walnut Creek and one in San Ramon). For more info, visit our Treatments page.
