​Scheduling an Appointment

 

Anyone living in Contra Costa County can get a test for COVID-19 (click to read press release) thanks, in part, by the generous support of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

 

There is no up-front cost for testing. You do not need medical insurance to get tested, however, if you have health insurance, your insurance will be billed. 

 

You can get a test at sites around the county or by calling your healthcare provider. You do not need a doctor’s note to schedule a test but you must make an appointment. 

Call 1-844-421-0804 if you have any reason to think you need a test. Symptoms can include cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, fatigue, muscle ache, sore throat, headache, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, recent loss of taste or smell, or confusion, particularly in older adults. 

 

A screener will take the information necessary to begin the process. You will then get a call back to schedule an appointment. Test results are available in a few days.
