COVID-19 Testing

Family Health Centers of San Diego is now offering outdoor COVID-19 testing at our clinics.

All FHCSD patients (18 years or older) are invited to one of the following outdoor COVID-19 testing locations. A health care provider will review your symptoms and administer a painless nasal swab test at testing stations outside of the clinic.

Please leave your children with a caregiver if possible, as they are not allowed in the testing area.
