Get tested, everyone - it's good for our health and economy
Published Thursday, November 12, 2020 11:00 am

Protect our health and help our region move out of the purple tier. If we prioritize testing, we can do both.

The County of Sonoma is asking employers to help their employees get tested on a weekly basis for COVID-19. The County is providing free, convenient, and confidential COVID-19 testing. Employers can reserve blocks of time or employees can schedule testing on their own. We encourage employers to make testing part of an employee’s schedule, providing an hour of paid time if necessary. As we move into winter and the flu season, identifying and caring for asymptomatic people in our community is essential to keeping infection rates low – with the benefit of helping our businesses open and operate safely.

Feel fine? Think you don't need to get tested? Think again

Asymptomatic COVID-19 positive persons can spread the virus, impact the health of co-workers and family members, and keep Sonoma County in the most restrictive reopening tier. Please, do your part to support our community. Together, we can protect the health of our community and help get businesses like indoor dining, wineries, gyms, movie theatres and more reopened.
