How to get tested

Step 1: COVID-19 Video Assessment

Book a "COVID video assessment". During your video appointment, your provider will assess your current or past symptoms, place an order for the appropriate test and answer any questions you may have.

Step 2: Sample Collection

You will be able to self-book a same or next-day collection appointment at our 1st and Folsom location in San Francisco. This will be a blood draw for antibody tests and nasal self-swab for active infection tests.

Step 3: Results within 1-2 business days

Your results will be sent to you via the app within 1-2 business days.

What COVID-19 tests are available at Circle Medical?

Circle Medical currently offers both a molecular test and an antibody test.

The molecular test is for active infection and is collected via a nasal self-swab.

The antibody test requires a serum sample from a blood draw.

Why is the video appointment required?

Both COVID-19 tests require a provider's order. During the video visit, your provider will assess your symptoms and history to make sure the correct test is ordered, that you understand the risks and benefits of the tests, and to make sure your situation does not require a different type of care.

Can I get tested if I am not showing symptoms?


Can I get a COVID test before traveling?

Yes! We offer COVID testing to rule out active infection and most of our tests results are back within 2 days.
