COVID-19 Testing

Community Testing Events


Community COVID-19 testing sites are being held throughout San Bernardino County. Samples will be collected using a swab in the nostril. These samples are then sent to a lab to test for the virus that causes COVID-19 (SARS‑CoV‑2 virus). Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.

You will be asked for health insurance information when registering so that your insurance is billed directly. You will not be charged a co-pay or share of the cost of the test. If you do not have insurance or do not want to provide it, you will still get tested.

If you have health insurance, please check with your primary healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing options. Your provider/health insurance may be able to provide testing options, locations, and/or dates/times that are more convenient for you and your family. 

Please note: The use of a face covering is required at all testing sites.

Antigen testing is an easy and convenient way to test for COVID-19 compared to the more popular PCR testing method. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted emergency use authorization (EUA) for antigen tests that can identify SARS-CoV-2.

Many local retailers and pharmacies offer over-the-counter at-home antigen tests available for purchase. Free at-home antigen self-test kits are available for pickup at County COVID-19 testing sites. Proof of living, working, or attending school in San Bernardino County is required. For more information, visit Limit two kits per person. Exceptions are available for caretakers or those who are homebound.
