Important COVID-19 Information

Center Visit Process: What you need to know

  1. We are now offering rapid COVID-19 testing, with results in 15 mins or less. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever with a cough and/or shortness of breath) or believe you have been exposed to a COVID-19 postive individual, please schedule a Virtual Visit to find out if you should be tested based on criteria from the CDC, WHO, and Dignity Health. A provider will refer you for testing at one of our local Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers if medically indicated.

  2. Although a Virtual Visit is higly recommended, If you cannot schedule a Virtual Visit, please save your spot online at a designated testing center. This will save you time and help us safely prepare for you and other patients. Please note that same-day testing is not always gaurenteed. 

  3. Please check-in at the front desk prior to your estimated visit time, then return to your car or wait outside. If you’ve opted for SMS from us, our queuing system will text you when a provider is ready to see you inside! Otherwise, our staff will call you when it’s your turn to be seen.

Frequently Asked Questions on COVID-19 Testing

Q: Can I get tested for COVID-19 at your centers?

A: Yes, we currently offer rapid COVID-19 testing if clinically indicated after a Virtual Visit with a provider. Please note that same-day testing is not always gauranteed. 

Q: Can I walk in for the test?

A: Please schedule a Virtual Visit prior to coming into a center for a COVID-19 Evaluation. If clinically appropriate based on CDC and state guidelines, our provider will schedule you for an in-person rapid COVID-19 test at one of our centers. Please note that same-day testing is not always gaurenteed.

Q: Should I go to the ER if I have COVID-19 symptoms?

A: If your symptoms are severe (trouble breathing, chest pain, fainting, uncontrollable pain) and you feel like you need to be hospitalized, you should seek emergency care right away. However, if your symptoms are mild to moderate we are recommending you stay home to self-quarantine, while continuing to monitor symptoms.

Q: Do you offer on-site testing for businesses?

A: Yes, if you are an employer interested in on-site testing for your staff, learn more on our on-site testing page.

Last Friday I cut myself pretty badly on my elbow and I needed stitches. Called my doctors office and they had no availability. Called Golden Gate Urgent Care and they gave me an appointment within an hour. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish. I was in and out in less than an hour.
