Covid-19 Testing & Treatment
– Jun 1, 2020(2 replies)
Hello- I'm wondering if anyone has experience being tested for COVID-19 at one of the three free Oakland testing sites (Henry J Kaiser, Roots Community Health Clinic, or Allen Temple). Specifically, I'm trying to get a sense of what the turnaround time between getting tested and receiving results is. Thanks in advance for any info!Jun 1, 2020RE: COVID-19 testing experience ()
Hi! I tested at the Emeryville site and it was a 48 hour turnaround. My doctor told me that I could expect the same from the Oakland testing sites. They are trying to get results back quickly due to people returning to the workplace.RE: COVID-19 testing experience ()
Hello, I wasn’t tested at any of those sites but various sources report the general turnaround time is 48 hours. That’s also what I was told when I was tested a few weeks ago and I felt lucky that my test results came in (negative) the day after I tested.
