Dignity Health offering COVID-19 testing in Redwood City

in Community/Featured/Headline

Since April 7, Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has been offering COVID-19 Rapid Testing in their Redwood City location.

While first responders and medical personnel are still prioritized for testing, community members are encouraged to schedule a virtual screening if they are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.

Community members who wish to receive a test do not need to be a member or affiliated with Dignity Health, and must be living in California during the time of their screening. Dignity Health offers screenings to adults and children over one year. Appointments are offered Monday through Friday, from 8am-8pm, and Saturday through Sunday from 9am-5pm.

To schedule a virtual visit, go to Dignity Health’s website, select the preferred time and date of your appointment, and complete an online registration form. If your virtual provider believes you are showing symptoms, they will schedule you for a COVID-19 Rapid Test.

To receive the test, you must drive to one of the testing clinics and remain in your car where providers will perform a nasal swab. After 5-13 minutes, patients will be informed of the results and follow up care.
