On behalf of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Vaccinate All 58 (VA58) Campaign, We would like to share information on COVID testing resources. In response to the current rise in COVID-19 cases, we need your assistance in promoting free over the counter (OTC) test kits currently available.

Our goal is to increase the number of people who have access to OTC test kits, especially those who need them most, including those who are uninsured and/or unable to get test kits covered through insurance. Please be advised that at this time, we are seeing an increase in test positivity rate in the following counties- Butte, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Imperial, Madera, Riverside, San Benito, San Diego, Solano. Stanislaus, Sutter, Tuolumne.

The California Department of Public Health has OTC test kits ready for distribution. Please note that these OTC kit ordering opportunities are not intended for individuals, but rather are for community based, faith based, and grassroots organizations. With this in mind, we ask that you kindly share the attached instructions on how to place an order with the appropriate networks.
