Let’s Talk about COVID-19 Testing 

COVID-19 transmission is on the rise. Testing remains an important tool in identifying and isolating infected individuals as soon as possible in order to prevent spread to others. If you are experiencing COVID-related symptoms, get tested as soon as possible. Or, if are you a close contact of someone who is COVID positive, follow Isolation and Quarantine guidance, monitor for symptoms, and get a COVID-19 test 5 days after your exposure.  

Where to get a test  

Our testing webpage as been updated to provide a list of all COVID-19 test providers in Marin. You can find details about types of tests offered, costs, insurance coverage, and even testing locations for people without insurance.
