OC COVID-19 Testing Network for those with Symptoms

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and you cannot get a test though your health care provider, you can get a FREE medical assessment and a test through the OC COVID-19 Testing Network. These are all community health centers that offer testing and care, even if you do not have health insurance. If you test positive, your close contacts (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes within a 24 hour period during the infectious period) will be tested or referred to another location for testing.
