​​

Testing Is Our Most Important Tool in the Fight Against COVID​-19

Widespread testing provides a more accurate picture of how many cases exist in our community and helps us understand how and where the virus is spreading. Testing helps identify people without symptoms who could be spreading COVID-19 so that they can stay away from work and public places until their infectious period is over.

 

 

Your Testing Rights: 

You have a right to be tested by your Provider, for more information please see the Updated Public Health Testing Order here​. This requires Providers to test people who have symptoms, were exposed to someone who tested positive, are referred by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department to their healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing, and are essential workers (including teachers, healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, and workers in agriculture or food manufacturing).

Testing Frequently Asked Questions


Cost of Testing

There is no up-front cost for testing. At many testing sites, you do not need medical insurance to get tested, however, if you have health insurance, you will be asked you to share that information. You are getting tested through your health care provider, a co-pay may be charged for your visit, but you will have no out-of-pocket expense for the COVID-19 test itself.

 

Getting Tested

You do not need a doctor’s referral or note to be tested. Sites offer accessible services for people with disabilities and those with other access or functional needs. When you arrive, if you need an accommodation, alert the staff on site.​

 

While You're Awaiting Results

  • Take steps to help preve​nt spread, including staying home, practicing physical distancing, wearing a cloth face covering, washing hands frequently, and regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces.
  • Quarantine at home for 14 days if you had close contact with someone with COVID-19, even if you have no symptoms. (Click here for Home Quarantine instructions for close contacts)
  • If you are sick, isolate at home until you get your results AND feel better. (Click here for Self-Isolation instructions)
  • Get medical help right away if you start feeling sicker, especially if you have trouble breathing, persistent chest pain, begin to feel confused, cannot stay awake, or develop bluish lips or face.
  • Call your health provider if your symptoms do not get better in a few days. Tell them you got tested for COVID-19. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call the Valley Connection Line at 1-888-334-1000
