Testing Information

For the most up-to-date state guidance regarding testing for COVID-19, refer to Updated COVID-19 Testing Guidance (ca.gov). 

Testing for COVID-19 should be obtained for all individuals with new symptoms of COVID-19 (Symptoms of COVID-19 | CDC) regardless of vaccination status. 

Testing for COVID-19 should be considered for all individuals identified as close contacts* to persons with confirmed COVID-19 AND all individuals who recently participated in activities that present increased risk of transmission (e.g., out-of-state-travel, crowded gatherings, high-risk sporting events, etc.). The ideal timing for testing of close contacts is 5-7 days after the exposure has occurred OR immediately if symptoms of COVID-19 arise. Laboratory-based PCR testing is the preferred testing modality in these situations. 

The use of asymptomatic screening testing largely depends upon the vaccination status of individuals. In most cases, fully vaccinated individuals should no longer participate in asymptomatic screening testing. For more information related to this topic, and other questions around testing for COVID-19, please refer to both point-of-care (POC) antigen testing at a frequency of at least twice a week AND laboratory-based PCR testing at a frequency of at least once a week are acceptable in this scenario. 

In many cases, businesses, event organizers, and government organizers may ask for pre-event or pre-participation testing. Generally speaking, both POC antigen testing AND laboratory-based PCR testing are acceptable in this scenario. 

*Definition of Close Contact: Someone who was within six feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.
