As of February 29, 2024, CDPH At-Home Testing Program has come to an end for most organizations.

Local health departments (LHDs), skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), long-term care facilities (LTCFs) and elder care facilities can request at-home tests until June 30, 2024, or when testing resources are exhausted, to support populations who are high risk for severe disease.

Professional CLIA-waived tests are available for facilities with their own CLIA-waiver and state facility license through June 30, 2024. See order form here: CLIA Antigen Testing Program For Facilities with their Own-CLIA
