Who is eligible to be tested?

Anyone is eligible who can consent for the tests. Children under 18 will need a parent or guardian to consent.


What are the reasons to get tested?

 Some of the most common reasons for testing include: 

  • Currently experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
  • Recently exposed to someone who tested positive or was exposed to COVID-19
  • Requirement for returning to work
  • Traveling requirement
  • Upcoming medical procedures or surgeries


What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.


What personal information will be collected?

Name, date of birth, address, phone number or email address if no access to a cell phone for results.


Do I need to pay for the test?

No. There is no cost for the test.

CEP was established to provide free, equal access to COVID-19 testing among underserved populations of Fresno including those who lack access, do not have insurance and/or cannot afford a test through primary care services.


Do I need an appointment to receive a test?

No. We are a drive-thru, first come, first-served service. 


Can I bring others with me?

Yes. You are welcome to bring others but preferably only those who live within your household.


What test do you use?

We use the Color COVID-19 Test Kit. The kit uses a nasal swab that is inserted approximately 1” into the nose to collect the specimen.


How accurate is the Color COVID-19 Test Kit?

99.9% accurate and is considered the standard of COVID-19 testing.


How long does it take for results and how do I get them? 

Results are usually available between 24 and 72 hours of the lab getting the specimen. Once the Color lab has completed processing your test, you will receive a text message with a link containing your results. Simply click on the link and enter the required information to receive your results i.e., Barcode received with your test and date of birth (DOB).  


What should I do if my results aren’t available? 

All specimens are sent to the lab with one-day shipping to expedite result processing. However, delays can occur on occasion, slowing down the process. Testing done at the end of the week has a greater chance of delayed results.

For more information on the status of your test, please contact the Color COVID Test Hotline listed on the card you received with your test.  For a faster experience, please have the card ready with your Barcode number and DOB.

Call: 1-844-352-0010


What should I do if I test positive? 

Isolate yourself away from others for a minimum of 10 days from the date of symptom onset or the day you tested if you have not had symptoms and until your symptoms are improving and you are fever free for at least 24 hours without any fever-reducing medications.

Stay home including don’t go to work or school for the remainder of the isolation period and

avoid all physical contact with others, including those you live with.

Wear a mask always when around others, wash your hands often, and maintain physical distance from others, even in your own home to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Call your contacts – Notify those you have been in contact with that you have tested positive for COVID-19 and ask them to self-quarantine for 10 days from last known contact.

For additional information please see the Health Officer Order and Isolation Guidance guidelines HERE.


Should I get retested if I have a positive test result?

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no need to be retested, as test results will likely remain positive for up to three months. Therefore, we do not retest known positive cases.

In instances where a negative test result is requested by your employer to return to work, please reference Section 7 within the Order of the Health Officer from the Department of Public Health for all employer & employee guidelines to be followed before returning to work.
