If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
If you need to be tested: You can get tested and treated for COVID-19 with one stop. The state’s Test to Treat site at 2420 Breslauer Way provides testing, and if the person is positive and treatments are appropriate, they receive a prescription from a health care provider and have the prescription filled all at one location. Schedule an appointment online. The site is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
If you need a vaccine: Find options at ShastaReady.org.
