COVID-19 Testing Sites

Community COVID-19 testing sites are being held throughout San Bernardino County. Samples will be collected using a swab in the nostril or in the mouth. These samples are then sent to a lab to test for the virus that causes COVID-19 (SARS‑CoV‑2 virus).

State testing sites are hosted by OptumServe in partnership with the California Department of Public Health. All State testing sites are held indoors and are open to the general public by appointment only, Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Testing is free for all individuals, including those who are uninsured, underinsured, undocumented, or homeless.

FAQ

The County has significantly expanded COVID-19 testing over the past few months. Since the pandemic began in March, we have conducted more than 170,000 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests, which indicate whether a person is currently infected with the coronavirus, and almost 20,000 serological tests, which can show whether an individual has antibodies indicating they successfully fought off the disease. San Bernardino County currently has 27 testing sites, strategically located throughout the 20,000-square-mile County.

In early July, we were impacted by a nationwide shortage in testing supplies. When shortages occur, we will limit the number of appointments available through the COVID-19 Testing Sites web page.

At the onset of the pandemic, a lack of available tests led our community health experts to limit testing only to individuals showing symptoms, those who had traveled to infected areas, those in contact with individuals who had tested positive, and frontline medical caregivers. We are now encouraging everyone to get tested — whether or not you have shown any symptoms of the disease.

Studies have shown that many infected people show no symptoms of the disease. For example, 60 percent of those who tested positive on the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt were asymptomatic, i.e., they showed no symptoms of the disease. The lack of widespread testing has probably identified a mere fraction of the people who have actually been infected — which risks putting people in danger, since most of the people who carry the virus do not know it. Simply put, it’s possible that thousands of infected people could innocently spread the disease.

Moreover, our ability to continue allowing businesses to open and stay open depends on our meeting certain criteria set by the State. Among these indicators are test results and positivity rates. If we can show we are testing a large number of people while keeping the percentage who test positive down, we can avoid further restrictions from the state and achieve total reopening sooner.

Unless there is a short-term, regional shortage of tests, getting tested is easy. You will first need to make an appointment on the COVID-19 Testing Sites page on the sbcovid19.com website. All persons must have an appointment confirmation number. There are a few different testing methods depending on the location or facility. Some will be a “nasopharyngeal specimen collection” which is a nasal swab administered by a healthcare professional, while other locations utilize a self-swab nasal test.

The whole process of testing takes 10-15 minutes. Sometimes there is a wait time so please be prepared by using the restroom before leaving for your appointment, bring water to stay hydrated and something to keep yourself entertained while you wait. Wearing a face covering is required.

The County’s COVID-19 website has a section devoted to testing site locations and hours.  Click here for more information.

No, a doctor’s prescription is not required.

Yes, you must make an appointment to get tested. Visit sbcovid19.com and go to the COVID-19 Testing Sites page to register for an appointment. Individuals with no internet access or who have access/functional needs can call to make an appointment at 909-387-3911, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

These are PCR tests, which indicate whether or not you are currently infected with the virus. There is another COVID-19 related test, which is referred to as a serological test. It detects antibodies that your body has produced to combat the coronavirus. The hope is that such antibodies provide some level of immunity to the disease; unfortunately, the scientific evidence for that remains unclear. The serological test does not replace a PCR test and isn’t used to diagnose COVID-19. The County is not currently conducting serology testing.

Most people do not consider either test method painful. With a nasopharyngeal collection, a healthcare professional will gently pass a sterile cotton-tipped swab through the nostril and into the nasopharynx, which is the upper part of the throat behind the nose. To see how to properly use the nasal self-swab test, visit https://youtu.be/x7PTJBOIsQU (Español)

Test results are usually available in 3-5 days, although the time may be shorter or longer depending on when you are tested. You will be notified by email or text when your results are ready to be viewed. All results (Positive, Negative, or Need New Sample) can be viewed or printed via Healthvana’s secure patient portal. Healthvana is a HIPPA-secure, mobile-friendly portal for patients to manage their health. Click here to learn more about the Healthvana patient portal.

Whether you test positive or negative for COVID-19, we encourage you to take preventive measures to protect yourself and others.

The PCR test only indicates whether or not you are currently infected with the coronavirus. It does not show whether you were previously infected and successfully fought off the disease.

If you test positive, stay at home and away from others for at least 14 days, starting from the date you were tested. If living conditions make it difficult for you to stay away from others (such as family/household members), stay in a specific room and away from other people and pets in your home as much as you can. If possible, you should use a separate bathroom. If you need to be around other people or animals in or outside of the home, wear a cloth face covering. (Additional guidance is available for those living in close quarters and shared housing). Click here to learn more about how to take care of yourself and help protect others in your home and community.

If you test positive, your patient information will be entered into the California Reportable Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE), a secure system that the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has implemented for electronic disease reporting and surveillance. The public cannot access your information in CalREDIE. Access is limited to a select group of healthcare and public health professionals.

No! A negative test should not be seen as your chance to stop being cautious. A PCR test only confirms your status with the virus at the time of testing.

The tests are more than 90% reliable but it is possible to get a ‘false negative’ result. If you have tested negative for COVID-19, but you are showing COVID-19-like symptoms, or have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, you should get tested again.

We are searching aggressively for asymptomatic carriers, meaning people who have the virus but are not showing any symptoms. This is especially important now that the County is reopening businesses and public facilities. Our goal is to avoid spikes in new cases, which could threaten our efforts to continually relax stay-at-home orders mandated by the state. That requires identifying those who are infectious but have not (and likely will never) develop symptoms.

Widespread testing will give us a better idea of how many people are sick, and help us better assess testing dynamics. It also will provide a more accurate understanding of what infections look like and the extent of community spread in the County overall.

Finally, for our economy to recover, it is essential for people to feel safe in public. Only then will they be comfortable patronizing stores, restaurants and other recently opened businesses.

While we are encouraging all residents to get tested, it is particularly important for people who have frequent contact with the public, including delivery drivers, emergency workers, and those who work in retail, food service or high-density workplaces.

If you test negative for COVID-19, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected. However, that does not mean you will never get sick. The test result only means that you did not have COVID-19 at the time of testing. Testing is available to anyone, even if you don’t have symptoms, but it is important to get tested if you:

  • Are showing symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough and shortness of breath
  • Are aged 65 years and older
  • Have underlying medical conditions
  • Are a healthcare worker or first responder
  • Work or live in places where many people live, such as long-term care facilities or prisons
  • Have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
  • Have been in gatherings and/or large crowds
