Testing for Priority Populations

Please enter a valid zip code.

People who live in close proximity to others, such as in apartment buildings, densely populated neighborhoods, or congregate settings, are considered priority populations when accessing COVID-19 testing.

Because individuals who live in close proximity to others have more opportunities to come in contact with people and potentially the virus, public health experts recommend that everyone who is part of a priority population get tested regularly, even if you don’t show any symptoms.

What to know about testing sites for priority populations:

  • These sites offer free testing, regardless of insurance coverage, so there is no cost to you
  • These sites will keep all your personal health information private and confidential
  • You can be tested for free, regardless of immigration status

Enter your zip code in the COVID-19 Testing Locator up above to explore testing sites near you. You can then get your no-cost test and think about setting up a schedule to get regular testing.

If you live in close proximity to others, we want to make sure you have access to these critical services so you can make informed safety-focused decisions.

Also, you may hear about no-cost testing services from community outreach, your church, or other organizations in your area. You should take advantage of these opportunities. It could make all the difference in stopping the spread of Coronavirus.

If you need further help or have questions about getting tested, please dial 2-1-1.
