Contra Costa residents who have a fever, cough or similar symptoms can make an appointment for free COVID-19 testing at one of four new drive-through sites around the county.

The sites, opened April 22 by Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS), are available to anyone regardless of insurance. Depending on their symptoms, callers may receive health advice during their screenings or an appointment for testing at one of four drive-through testing sites:

  • Contra Costa Public Health Clinic Services, 2500 Bates Ave., Concord
  • Martinez Health Center, 2500 Alhambra Ave., Martinez
  • Pittsburg Health Center, 2311 Loveridge Road, Pittsburg
  • West County Health Center, 23601 San Pablo Ave., San Pablo

Testing is available to people who have symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, coughing or shortness of breath and fatigue.

Any Contra Costa resident with these symptoms can call 1-844-421-0804 for a confidential screening by a health professional. Telephone screenings will be available from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Screening and appointments are only available by phone. Testing is not available on a walk-in basis.

Patients with appointments must travel in their personal vehicles to their appointments, Testing is done without patients leaving their vehicles. Testing results are available in three to five days.

“It is crucial to ramp up testing in Contra Costa so we can get a more accurate idea of the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” CCHS Director Anna Roth said. “It is also crucial for everyone in the community to have access to testing, to better protect themselves and their families.”
