Get Tested

Testing is available for people with and without symptoms. If you have symptoms and/or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, please follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.

Do not go to a hospital emergency room unless you are having a medical emergency, and call ahead if possible.

About Testing Types

All three testing types--PCR, Antigen and Antibody--are available in Shasta County. Learn more about each type with this helpful handout from CDPH.

When deciding on a testing type, please keep in mind:

  • PCR tests are the most accurate and reliable.
  • Rapid (Antigen) tests are available at some private labs and as home self-test kits. However, they are not as reliable. It is good practice to follow up with a PCR test--especially if the test is negative but you have symptoms.
  • Antibody tests do not detect the virus, they look for the antibodies. Antibodies fight the COVID-19 virus to help you get better and will appear about 7-14 days after you have the virus in your system. Get a PCR or Antigen test if you need to know if you are currently infected with COVID-19.
