Introduction to Coronavirus Testing Sites

Coronavirus Testing Sites can be used to identify at-risk populations and develop coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) testing site plans.

Preventing the spread of infection is one of the most effective ways to stop the pandemic and reopen communities. Widespread testing helps residents determine if they have been infected and could spread coronavirus to others. Furthermore, testing matters more in communities affected the most. Communities of color and socioeconomically vulnerable communities are disproportionately burdened by the pandemic and the impact is acute. Understanding population demands and where racial and socioeconomic vulnerabilities exist helps communities locate ideal testing sites. Coronavirus Testing Sites is typically implemented by health and human services or public safety agencies that want to optimize the location of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) testing sites, maximize limited testing resources and ensure communities affected the most have access to coronavirus testing.

The Coronavirus Testing Sites solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you identify at-risk populations, locate optimal testing sites, manage testing site status, and share testing site information with the public.
