When to get tested?

Vaccinated or not, get tested immediately if you’re feeling any COVID-19 symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms and test negative by antigen test (such as a home rapid test), then you are encouraged to retest with a PCR test especially if you’ve had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.

Test within 3-5 days after last exposure and wear a well-fitting mask around others for a total of 10 days, especially in indoor settings and when near those at higher risk for severe COVID-19 disease.

Do not travel until a full 5 days after your last close contact with the person with COVID-19. It is best to avoid travel for a full 10 days after your last exposure. If you must travel during days 6 through 10 after your last exposure: Get tested at least 5 days after your last close contact.

PCR and antigen tests

Molecular tests, also known as PCR tests

The PCR molecular test is accurate and usually does not need to be repeated. Average turnaround time is one to three days, depending on lab processing.

Isolate as described on our Isolation and Quarantine page. If possible, you can also contact your health care provider for guidance.

  • Though there are thousands of testing opportunities each week, the current surge in cases has created high demand. The capacity for walk-in appointments is limited at most clinics. Please make the next available appointment even if it is several days later.
  • Organizations, such as businesses, health centers, congregate facilities, faith-based or community-based organizations and schools, can apply for on-site PCR testing by visiting California’s COVID-19 Testing Task Force’s Get Started page.

Antigen tests, also known as rapid tests or at-home tests

With antigen tests, positive results are usually accurate, though negative tests may need to be confirmed. Average turnaround time is quite fast, ranging 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the test and/or tester.

  • Please fill in this form to self-report your at-home test result. Reporting your result is confidential. Once the form is submitted, you will receive links to isolation and quarantine guidelines and available resources.
  • If your test result is positive for COVID-19, isolate as described on our Isolation and Quarantine page. Please note: antigen tests are preferred on day five or later for testing when you are in isolation. If possible, contact your health care provider for guidance.
  • All OptumServe-LHI COVID-19 testing sites now offer antigen testing.
  • Roseland Community Clinic offers individuals antigen tests based on supply.
  • You can also order four antigen tests per household at covidtests.gov and could receive reimbursement for up to 8 tests per month.
  • Organizations, such as businesses, health centers, congregate facilities, faith-based or community-based organizations and schools, can apply for on-site antigen testing by visiting California’s COVID-19 Testing Task Force’s Get Started page.

Did you know that the California Department of Public Health endorses the emergency use of over-the counter COVID-19 tests beyond their FDA authorized expiration date? This extension applies when the internal control line on the test is both easily visible AND the color that is noted in the test instructions. If the internal control line is not visible or the correct color, then you should not use the test. 

This emergency extension applies to all FDA authorized over-the-counter COVID-19 tests, visit the State of California Safe Schools for All Hub’s COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test Expiration Extensions letter.

More testing guidance and information

Important: Continue to practice physical distancing, wear a face covering when near other people who are not in your household, and wash your hands often.

  • If you do not have symptoms and have not been advised by a medical professional to quarantine at home, you may resume your normal activities.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms, stay home, and keep your distance from others.

Those with a positive test result may receive a follow-up phone call from a Public Health professional to get information for contact tracing and to direct you to support you may need while you are infected.

Consult with airlines, destinations, or events several days before arriving. Each may have unique test requirements and a list of preferred providers that issue acceptable results. Arriving at a gate without acceptable test results and/or proof of vaccine status can cost you time and frustration. For more information, visit CDPH’s Current Travel Recommendation.

County officials urge residents to use trusted testing companies, such as the providers listed above, when they need a test. Please use caution when utilizing other providers. In addition, read the FAQ below addressing rumors about proper Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certification.

If you have feedback or a complaint about a testing site, please fill out this form and submit via email to lfslabcomplaints@cdph.ca.gov. You can also visit CDPH’s Laboratory Field Services complaint page for more information about how complaints are handled.

The FDA is aware of counterfeit at-home over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic tests being distributed or used in the United States. These counterfeit tests should not be used or distributed. For information about tests that are not authorized, cleared, or approved by the FDA for distribution or use in the United States, but are made to look like authorized tests, visit the FDA’s Counterfeit At-Home OTC COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests page.

Contact tracing helps break the chain of infection by identifying potential positive cases, getting them to care, and helping them to isolate from othersThe Department of Health Services (DHS) has expanded its system for monitoring cases and contacts by training more health investigators and increasing lab capacity. If you are identified as someone who has been in contact with an infected person, a health worker may contact you.
