Important information about testing

Thank you for considering SARS-CoV-2 viral antigen testing through CityHealth. Aside from social distancing, proper mask wearing, sheltering-in-place and frequent hand washing, testing is an important step in working together as a community to help fight coronavirus.

Due to a national shortage of testing supplies, CityHealth is now reserving our instant testing option for frontline public safety and health care personnel. Below is detailed information about the type of instant test that we offer.

Your test will be for a molecular PCR test. We will obtain your nasal swab sample and send it to our lab partners. Projected turn around time for results is 3-5 days.


  • If your result is negative, you MUST continue to shelter-in-place and take every precaution not to become infected as well as to not potentially infect others. Your result will be sent to your through our HIPAA compliant health portal at com. Please know that a negative result only provides a snapshot in time to determine that at the time of the test, you did not have detectable levels of the virus. This does not mean that within hours of getting the test or by the time that you receive results that you won’t be infected with COVID-19.

What to know before you arrive

Prior to your arrival, you must read and sign all consent forms through the onpatient portal. Please be sure to check you email, including spam folders, for login information on how to access onpatient. You will need to navigate to -> Appointments -> Check In, as shown in the screenshot below.

As per the Alameda County Department of Public Health, below is useful information pulled from their website on who we recommend get tested as well as a description of what the symptoms of COVID-19 are. As an Alameda County COVID-19 testing site, we welcome any participation and guidance from our healthcare partners at the DPH.

I got the COVID-19 test through CityHealth and it was a very pleasant experience. I was nervous about the test itself because of videos and pictures I saw online. When I got tested it was not painful at all. It just feels like someone swabbing the inside of my nose with a Q-TIP. In and out in under 30 minutes.
