Get Tested! Expanded COVID-19 Testing Options now Available to Everyone

Posted on May 21, 2020

Help us open safely. Community-wide testing is a critical step toward re-opening the County and allows us to identify and increase our understanding of COVID-19 community spread. We know that upwards of 40% of people who test positive experience no symptoms (asymptomatic), but can still spread the disease. Testing is now available at multiple locations, including:

  • Free drive-thru testing for essential workers or at-risk people at the County Public Health Laboratory. Call 707-565-4667 to make an appointment.
  • Two sites (Santa Rosa and Petaluma) open to everyone (operated by OptumServe, under contract with the State). Appointments open to everyone, but you must first schedule through their online system at

    *NEW* Free drive-thru testing in Sonoma Valley at Sonoma Valley Hospital (Monday – Friday 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm, Saturday 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm) and Altimera Middle School (Saturdays 10 am -12 noon) in collaboration with local agencies including the Sonoma County Health Department and Supervisor Gorin’s office, Sonoma Valley Community Health Center (SVCHC) will be testing anyone, COVID symptomatic or symptom-free, who lives or works in Sonoma Valley. Please visit the SVCHC website for complete information including car requirements and required personal information. Those without a vehicle can call SVCHC at 707-935-8005 and make an appointment for an on-site test.

The testing sites listed above are to detect if you are infected with the coronavirus. It is not an antibody (aka serology) testing.  The County is working to offer antibody testing in the coming weeks. Visit the SoCoEmergency website or more information about testing in Sonoma County.
