How to Get a COVID-19 Test

Testing is currently recommended if any of the following exist:

  • You have symptoms of COVID-19

  • You don't have symptoms but have a known COVID-19 exposure or exposure concerns.

  • You are suspected of having COVID-19 by a healthcare provider

  • You are an essential worker with frequent contacts with the public

Individuals that live in Orange County should first call their health care provider for a COVID-19 test.  If you have health insurance and need help finding your healthcare provider, call the customer service number on your insurance card, or view websites of major healthcare providers in Orange County.
