Provider Testing


Most healthcare providers also offer COVID-19 testing to patients who meet testing criteria. If you need to be tested for COVID-19, you can start by reaching out to your normal healthcare provider. Children, especially, should seek testing in consultation with their healthcare provider.  


If you do not have a regular healthcare provider, you can contact Sutter Urgent Care at 707-464-8818 or Redwood Urgent Care at 707-298-2011.


You may also call the Sutter COVID-19 Advice Line at 866-961-2889 from 8 am to 6 pm every day. 


Some healthcare providers are using commercial labs for serology (antibody) testing. Please call your healthcare provider to confirm. Redwood Urgent Care is also offering serology (antibody) testing at their Eureka site.


Who Should Get Tested


As of July 23, 2020, CDPH has updated its COVID-19 testing guidelines. Over the past 3 months, testing has expanded rapidly in California and CDPH has recommended prioritization of testing. More detailed information about testing guidelines can be found on the CDPH website


The state-sponsored site is available for anyone who would like to get tested. You do not need to be experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in order to get a test, but the new guidance from CDPH will impact the order in which commercial labs process tests. 

Testing to be Released From Quarantine
