Testing ImageThe County of Santa Clara Department of Public Health recommends that healthcare providers test more people in order to better identify individuals who are infected, protect vulnerable populations and better understand the spread of disease in our communities. Many healthcare providers are now offering testing to patients who meet testing criteria, so those in need of testing should start by reaching out to their primary care provider.

If you do not have a medical provider or if you don't have health insurance, please contact Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Valley Connection Line at 1-888-334-1000 and ask to speak to an advice nurse who can connect you to necessary testing and care.

  • All persons who were notified that they were exposed to someone who was confirmed to have COVID-19;
  • All persons who work in high-risk congregate settings such as skilled nursing facilities, other long-term care facilities, jails, or shelters; and
