If you've been working outside the home, protesting with large groups, sending your kid to summer camp, otherwise expanding your social bubble, or if you're worried you have COVID, you can get tested for COVID-19 for free — with or without health insurance.
Although asymptomatic people are eligible for these tests, it is still quite a process to complete the form and get the appointment. The test is “free” with or without insurance, but if you have insurance, they'll want all that information when you book your appointment. The soonest free test I could schedule in Berkeley was twelve days in the future.
