8 COVID-19 test sites 5.6.2020
Dear Taxi Industry members:
We shared information about COVID testing with you recently and want to make sure that you have the most up-to-date information. Please be advised that the city has now opened 8 COVID-19 test sites to expand testing capacity beyond essential workers, to all people who live in San Francisco and residents with barriers to healthcare.
Please visit the web site - Get tested: Find out about your COVID-19 testing options for more information.
The tests are powered by Color (link to website), which is a high volume COVID-19 testing lab. Test results typically take 1 to 3 days. If you have symptoms, please wait for a negative test result before returning to work.
City Test San Francisco provides COVID-19 testing for essential workers, people who live in San Francisco and any resident with symptoms, with a focus on those who are uninsured or have barriers to healthcare.
You do not need a doctor's note to schedule a test, and you will not be charged for the test. (If you do have health insurance, they will ask you for that information when you schedule.)
This testing is available for all people who live in San Francisco and any essential worker who has to leave their home to do their job and interact with the public, or cannot social distance on the job, or is over 60 years of age.
