Expanded Free COVID-19 Testing by Appointment

Post Date:04/29/2020 5:20 PM

Contra Costa County is expanding its free COVID-19 testing at four drive-through locations throughout the County. Previously, testing at these sites was only open to first responders, healthcare workers or Contra Costa Health Plan members (who are mostly Medi-Cal and Medicare enrollees). 

This testing is available by appointment only, to residents who have symptoms of the virus. Symptoms include fever, coughing, shortness of breath and fatigue.  

You must call Contra Costa Health Services to make an appointment for testing, and will be screened over the phone by a health care provider.  

This expanded testing is available to all County residents regardless of insurance. 

Testing is offered at four drive-through sites:

  • West County Health Center, 13601 San Pablo Avenue, San Pablo
  • Contra Costa Public Health Clinic Services, 2500 Bates Ave., Concord
  • Martinez Health Center, 2500 Alhambra Ave., Martinez
  • Pittsburg Health Center, 2311 Loveridge Road, Pittsburg

People must stay in their cars for the test.

To make an appointment: 

Call: 1-844-421-0804 for a confidential screening by a health professional. 

Hours of operation: Monday - Friday, from 8 am to 3:30 pm 

Testing results are available in three to five days. 

Testing is vital to understanding the number of people infected and how the virus is transmitted. This information helps us protect ourselves and our families. Testing data is also essential to any strategy that reduces shelter at home requirements and gets us back to work.  

Contra Costa Health Services' Data Dashboard shows detailed COVID-19 information including cases by city, gender and age, and hospitalization, ICU and ventilator usage. 

Please remember: 

"Stay in place, maintain your space, cover your face!"
