COVID-19 Testing Options: Know Where to Go! 

COVID-19 testing remains a vital tool in our pandemic-ending toolkit.   

When you’re in need of a COVID-19 test, look to the trusted arms of the health care system: providers, public health (and contracted partners), urgent cares and pharmacies.  Your doctor or local medical clinic can assess whether a COVID-19 test is needed and either provide the test quickly or refer you to a licensed test provider.   

Additionally, Marin Public Health has partnered with LHI and Curative to provide community testing for free, especially for those who do not have health insurance. Also, there are several self-referral providers that provide COVID-19 tests without a referral from a doctor.  

Visit our Testing webpage to view a list of testing providers in Marin County 

If you see a testing location in Marin County that looks suspicious, please notify your local law enforcement agency. If a legitimate testing site has been set up, they should know about it. But if the site is fake, they’ll want to know. 

Self Test COVID-19 Kits Also Available 

There are now FDA-authorized COVID-19 tests available for purchase online or in a store that can be used completely at home. Most insurance carriers cover the cost of at-home testing, so long as the test is FDA-authorized.  

There are two methods of at-home testing: 

  • Home collection tests: Samples are collected at home and sent to a lab for analysis — you typically find out the results in a few days. 
  • At-home testing: Samples are collected at home and you perform the test — you get results in a few minutes. 

Every test or collection kit is different, so read directions carefully before beginning and follow them exactly.  When you receive your results, you'll need to call your primary care doctor or local clinic -- especially if you test positive -- to understand how to safely proceed with quarantine.
