Project Baseline is offering free test kits to those that may be showing symptoms in the Bay Area. You must first fill out an initial survey before staff will get back to you on whether or not they feel that you need to be tested. As stated on their website, “This program is intended to expand access to COVID-19 risk screening and testing”. So far they are only offering testing to Santa Clara and San Mateo County, but if you are in need of testing, call first and they should be able to offer you some help in some way.

Everlywell At-Home Tests (cost $135)
The test can be requested online by consumers experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Samples can be collected at home, preventing further exposure for themselves and the public. All of Everlywell's laboratory partners conducting COVID-19 testing are complying with FDA's Emergency Use Authorization for COVID-19 testing.

Like Everlywell's other tests, the COVID-19 test will be shipped to customers with everything needed to collect a sample at home and safely ship that sample to a CLIA-certified laboratory partner. Samples will be shipped to partner labs with overnight delivery, secure digital results will be available online within 48 hours of the lab receiving the sample, and free telehealth consultations with an independent, board-certified physician will be available for those with positive results.

To access a COVID-19 test, consumers can go to where they will be asked to complete a screening questionnaire, provided by our independent telehealth partner and based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). The test will be available for $135 at no profit to Everlywell, and will be covered by participating HSA and FSA providers. Everlywell has reached out to government officials and public health departments to see if the test can be made available for free. Given the high demand for testing, the company will work rapidly to make more tests available as the global supply shortage for COVID-19 diagnostic kits is addressed.
