California COVID-19 risk screening and testing

If you are interested in getting tested for COVID-19, complete an online screener based on guidelines from public health officials. Based on the responses and testing appointment availability, you will learn whether you qualify for testing through this program at this time.

We are working to rapidly expand testing in every way that we can; please check back soon as we add more testing sites and may expand eligibility criteria.

Currently offering testing for COVID-19 to Californians in:

  • Santa Clara County
  • San Mateo County
 
 
Advancing testing and containment for COVID-19

Public health officials globally are working together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Expanding access to reliable screening is critical to containment efforts.

The COVID-19 Program is a collaboration between Verily’s Project Baseline and the state of California to expand access to COVID-19 screening and testing in areas with a high volume of known cases.

Thank you for sharing this information. That is definitely good news for CA folks!! I just hope it doesn't take too long to get other places on board too, before it's too late so to speak. I guess time will tell.

it's happening in other states under state or local auspices. now that old and unhelpful CDC regulations have been swept away to move testing to state level using  private labs,etc .  i'm sure Google wants to be sure things are functioning properly before expanding. 

 

i would expect it to pop up where need is greatest.  after all most don't need testing.
