COVID-19 testing is widely available in Anaheim and throughout the county. It is available to anyone, with or without symptoms, and to both those with and without health insurance.

Diagnostic testing is at no out-of-pocket cost. Insurers will be billed and are required to cover costs with no copayment. For those without insurance, federal funding covers the cost of testing.

Travel testing, rapid tests and other optional specialized testing does come with a cost, ranging from $99 to $299.

Diagnostic tests are a swab sample known as polymerise chain reaction, or PCR, testing.

PCR swab testing is the standard for determining whether someone is currently infected with COVID-19.

At-home test kits, both saliva and nasal swab, are also available to Anaheim residents through the county of Orange.

Results generally are texted or emailed to you within one to three days, sometimes within 24 hours.

With a rise in cases, testing is important to ensure that those who test positive can be aware of it and isolate. This helps stem the spread of the virus in the community.
