- The Hayward COVID-19 Testing Center is now collecting health insurance information so it can seek reimbursement for testing costs. However, insurance is not required to be tested and no individual will be charged a fee of any kind to be tested, including an insurance co-payment. Testing remains available free of charge to anyone age 12 or older, regardless of place of residence or immigration status or whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. No physician referral is required. However, a person must provide either health insurance or other identifying information to allow the center to seek third-party reimbursement for its testing costs.
- As part of the process for signing up for a COVID-19 test, individuals also will be able to register to receive an email notice when their test result is available online. Individuals who test positive for coronavirus infection will still receive a telephone call with the result, as well as information and advice on next steps, and the availability of supportive services and resources.
- The City has closed its general COVID-19 hotline call center that has been available at (510) 583-4949. It has been replaced it with a call center specifically associated with the COVID-19 testing center, which can be reached at (510) 583-5333.
