Learn How to Get Tested for COVID-19
Testing for COVID-19 is critical to fighting the spread in our community. Residents have access to free COVID-19 testing either through their health care provider, or San Mateo County’s free testing sites through Verily/Project Baseline. This free drive-thru testing is now available to anyone, with or without symptoms. All you need is to make an appointment online. Testing is available in several cities on various days of the week throughout San Mateo County, including at the Event Center.
Who Should Get Tested:
If you have any form of health insurance, your first stop for testing should be your primary care physician or local medical clinic. This is the best way to get follow-up care right away, and you may also get your results faster. To find testing sites in addition to those that may be offered by your healthcare provider, visit the state’s testing site locator.
The County offers free COVID-19 testing to anyone without restriction and without regard to insurance through Project Baseline. There are testing sites throughout the county, but they are capped at 500 tests per day, so it’s advisable to schedule an appointment online at https://bit.ly/2xk73OL.
