Frequently Asked Questions

General Information

Who Is Eligible?  

Anyone is eligible who can consent for the tests. Children under age 18 will need a parent or guardian to consent. Tests will be offered for both symptomatic and asymptomatic populations. Widespread testing in our community helps us determine where resources are needed and helps to track cases to minimize exposures.

How are locations determined?

Our physical location is at: 2630 E Weldon Ave.  However, we do have mobile units that will serve local and rural underserved communities of color in cooperation with our community-based organization partners.

What social distancing measures are in place at the testing sites?

The COVID-19 Equity Project is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines regarding  social distancing and will have signage around the building that all must adhere to. In addition, masks must always be worn.

Do I need to pay for the test?

No. There is no cost for the test.  No insurance or copays will be collected.

What personal information will be collected?

We require name, date of birth, address, phone number etc. to run the test.

Can I bring others with me to my appointment?

The majority of our testing will take place outside, so you are welcome to bring others as long as you follow social distancing guidelines.

Testing

Diagram of covid nasal test with swabWhat Covid test will I receive?

Each patient will receive two tests – a Rapid Antigen test and a PCR lab send out test. Rapid tests result in under 30 minutes. All rapid tests must be verified with the PCR lab send out which has a turnaround time of 2-5 days.

How will I get swabbed?

You can drive in and park. Our staff members will guide you and observe you while you swab yourself in your vehicle. No registration required.

What type of swab is being used?

We use the anterior nasal swab which only needs to go into the nose up to an inch. 

How accurate is the Rapid Antigen test that CEP is using?

Per current literature, the BD Veritor Rapid Antigen test is 84% sensitive. So it misses 1 in 6 COVID cases that the PCR lab test will find. However, a positive result is almost 100% reliable. Currently, the BD Veritor Rapid Antigen test is approved by the FDA for emergency use only.

How accurate is the PCR test?

Currently, the PCR is considered the most reliable test.

Can I get retested?

If you have tested positive before, per CDC guidelines, there is no utility to being retested as it will likely remain positive for up to three months.

Testing Results

How will I get notified of my results?
For the rapid test, we will try our best to give you the results while you are parked at the static site. However, if we are very busy, then we will call you the same day but only if your results are positive. You should assume that your result is negative if you have not heard back from us.

Similarly, for the PCR lab test, you can assume your result is negative if you have not received a call in a week. However, we will call you if you’re result is positive as soon as we get the results.

You can stop by our static site for a letter documenting your results. Please refer to the FAQs above regarding the accuracy of the results.

What to do if your rapid test result is negative but your PCR test result is pending, plus you have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID?

Please follow these Fresno County Department of Public Health Guidelines.

Follow up

What does the follow up look like?
If you tested positive, our community health workers will call you to do contact tracking and provide social support services, if needed.

Can I get retested?

If you have tested positive before, per CDC guidelines, there is no utility to being retested as it will likely remain positive for up to three months. Therefore, we do not retest known positive cases
