The County of San Mateo has expanded COVID-19 testing opportunities, including additional mobile operations and targeted testing where outbreaks are suspected.
Increasing access to testing plays an important role in the County’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Knowing – and limiting – the extent of COVID-19 infections helps inform the public health response and plays a key role in determining what sectors of the economy are permitted to open and at what level of operations.
You have options.
If you have health insurance, you may be able to schedule an appointment with your provider.
The County offers no-cost testing through Verily’s Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program at either the San Mateo County Event Center or at a mobile operation serving numerous communities on a rotating basis.
