COVID-19 testing
Currently, COVID-19 tests at Kaiser Permanente are only available with your doctor’s referral. We’re testing all members with COVID-19 symptoms, as well as some members who come in for certain procedures or require testing for another reason. If you’re concerned that you or a family member are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed, you can start with an e-visit at kp.org/getcare. It’s a quick and convenient online care option that enables you to skip a trip to your doctor’s office.

For the latest and most up-to-date information about COVID-19 testing, including the different types of tests, who’s being tested, and how testing is done, visit our FAQs about COVID-19 testing.
