FREE COVID-19/No Symptom Testing Now Available

Anyone 18 years or older living in Sacramento County can receive free testing for COVID-19--even if they have no symptoms--simply by completing this screening survey:

Once the survey is completed, participants will be eligible for an appointment at the Mobile Testing Site at Cal Expo. 

Please note: 

  • This testing site is not intended for people experiencing severe symptoms, such as severe cough, severe shortness of breath, severe fever, or other concerning symptoms  that would  require more immediate medical care. 
  • There is no medical care provided on-site.
  • No walk-up appointments will be accepted. Participants must complete the survey.
  • Participants must come to their appointment in a car that has windows that roll up in order to protect both the patient and the onsite workers. 

Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus 

It’s critical for everyone to do three things to help stop the spread:

1. Follow the Governor's and the County’s Stay-at-Home Orders, which require that you stay at your place of residence except when you need necessities, such as food or medical supplies. You may go outside to care for pets, go on a walk, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors, as long as you do not gather in a group, and there is at least six feet between you and other people.

2. Do the Five

  • HANDS: Wash them often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer.
  • ELBOW: Cough or sneeze into it, or into a tissue that is immediately thrown away.
  • FACE: Don’t touch it, especially your nose, mouth and eyes.
  • SPACE: Keep a safe distance from others (at least 6 feet).
  • HOME: Stay at home, especially if you are sick.

3. Follow County Requirements and CDC Recommendations 

  • Wear cloth face coverings when in public when social distancing is not possible. Click here for more information about the use of cloth face coverings. 
  • Frequently clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched and used regularly.
  • Watch for symptoms. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or new loss of taste or smell. These symptoms can appear 2 – 14 days after exposure to the virus. Learn more
