Where Can I Get a PCR Test in San Francisco?
The patient can go to the medical biology laboratory of his choice, but he must check beforehand if this laboratory is equipped to perform Covid-19 screening tests.
The list of laboratories that perform these tests is available on this page.
The physician who ordered the screening test or the Health Insurance teams can also refer the patient to the laboratory closest to his or her home. Mobile sampling teams that travel to patients’ homes may also be mobilized when necessary.
The laboratories that perform Covid-19 screening tests have set up a specific organization to take care of patients while respecting barrier procedures (opening of dedicated time slots for Covid-19 tests, online appointment scheduling, etc.). Information should be obtained directly from the laboratory, either online or by telephone.
When making an PCR Test appointment in San Francisco, identification information (last name, first name, etc.) may be requested to pre-populate the patient’s administrative file and limit the time spent in the laboratory and the associated risks of contamination. The information will be recorded in the Covid-19 national screening monitoring information system (SI-DEP) to enable the follow-up of patients diagnosed as positive and their contacts and thus fight against the spread of the epidemic.
