The County is requesting that businesses take an active role in advancing testing in the community. To enhance efforts to identify COVID-19 cases, businesses can:
Sponsor a testing site for employees at their facility by reviewing information available here. You can also see labs currently on California’s Testing Task Force Lab List.
Let employees know that there are neighborhood pop-up testing sites offering free testing — they can visit socoemergency.org to see if there are sites in the neighborhood where they live or work, and they can call 707-565-4667 to set up an appointment.
Encourage employees to take a test at one of the State operated OptumServe testing sites at either the Sonoma County Fairgrounds or at the Windsor Bluebird Center in Windsor. Operators are available at 1-888-634-1123, and they can provide information in either Spanish or English about the sites and appointments. Testing is free.
Be sure to inform your employees that if they live within targeted census tracts they can receive gift cards for getting tested, and may be eligible for financial assistance if they are diagnosed with COVID-19. View COVID-19 Enhanced Response Map for information on census tracts and eligibility for financial resources.
Employers can go to Covid-19 Workplace Exposure Guidelines for Employers for assistance and resources if an employee tests positive.
