The team here at Skip is monitoring sources daily to bring you the latest developments in coronavirus testing from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local governments. Whether you're choosing to get tested, self-isolate, or stay home, here is up-to-date information to help you make informed choices for you, your loved ones, and your community.
Where can I get tested for coronavirus?
The Center for Disease Control is updating its website daily with public health testing centers, C.D.C. testing centers, and links to your state health departments. If you don't have a healthcare provider, you can visit your state's website to find a contact number to call regarding the latest testing information.
If you are in Santa Clara or San Mateo Counties in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Verily testing project, by Google, is now live for you.
Are there other testing options?
Yes, other testing sites are becoming available around the country, with several states announcing drive-through testing. Kaiser Permanente started drive-through testing in San Francisco for those who meet the C.D.C. requirements. If you have a private health-care provider, ask if they have a drive-through option.
On Friday March 13, 2020, the CEOs of Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens met at the White House and announced they are working on drive-through testing options. The timeline for this is still TBD. We'll update this page as we learn more.
Other coronavirus testing questions?
For any emergencies, call 911 or your healthcare provider. If you have general inquiries as you prepare, or if you've had an experience with testing yourself and want to share, email us.
