Testing Criteria for the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you feel symptoms rise to the level of needing medical attention, call your primary care doctor.

Your provider will determine if you would benefit from testing, and may contact Shasta County Public Health to determine the next step.

Public Health uses guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prioritize testing. If a patient does not meet the testing criteria of the Shasta County Public Health Lab, a medical provider may elect to order a test through a commercial laboratory.
