Appointments Now Required at Contra Costa Health Services COVID-19 Testing Sites

Thursday, December 23, 2021

Due to a sharp increase in demand this week, appointments are now required at Contra Costa Health Services' (CCHS) community COVID-19 testing locations in Richmond and San Ramon.

CCHS previously offered testing to those without appointments as capacity permitted. Until further notice, appointments will be required for tests at the clinics, at 25th St. and Nevin Ave. in Richmond and 2600 Camino Ramon in San Ramon.

Appointments for testing at these locations are available online or by calling 1-833-829-2626. Appointments for testing at state-operated clinics in Antioch, Brentwood, Pleasant Hill and San Pablo are also available online or by calling 1-833-829-2626.

Community healthcare providers may also offer testing services to their patients and members.

This week CCHS has distributed about 14,000 no-cost rapid antigen test kits into the community through the district offices of Contra Costa County's supervisors, community-based organizations, testing sites and other venues. We expect about 14,000 more home test kits next week from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which will also be distributed promptly.

Home test kits may also available for sale at drugstores and online commercial sites.

CCHS' two testing sites, as well as state testing sites operating in Antioch, Brentwood, Pleasant Hill and San Pablo, will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, as well as New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
