Since testing began for COVID-19 last winter, 228,590 tests have been recorded in Marin County (counting multiple tests by a single person) and 6,561 have come back positive. Residents should be aware of their options for testing as case counts rise.
An updated list of local testing locations is on the Marin County Public Health website.
In addition to the new Curative testing locations, residents can access testing through offices of health care providers, dedicated test sites, and Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved home testing kits. Mail-in home testing options are gaining in popularity as a convenient alternative to traveling to a testing site. Families with returning college-aged students can have a test waiting at home.
Anyone seeking a COVID-19 test should first contact a health care provider. Most providers now offer testing for their patients and are required to do so under California public health regulations.
The Public Health Division of Marin County Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) offers the following considerations for who should get tested.
