Other Testing Resources

The California Coronavirus COVID-19 Testing Task Force website has additional information for where to find a COVID-19 test site as an individual, along with how to enroll your facility or school as a test site.

To find "Test to Treat" locations, visit CDPH's website here. OptumServe sites in Roseville and Truckee are now providing COVID-19 rapid testing, assessment by a medical provider, and prescription antiviral pills if appropriate, all onsite and free of charge. Make an appointment.

COVID-19 treatment works best when started as soon as possible after symptoms start and before symptoms worsen. If you don't have a health care provider or don't hear back from your provider within a few days, visit a Test to Treat location to get rapid testing and find out if treatments are right for you.
