Dear Disability Community Members:

The Mayor's Office on Disability hopes that you are doing your best to stay safe during the current pandemic surge in San Francisco, and throughout California.   Should you wish to obtain a COVID test during this holiday season, our colleagues at Covid Command Community Branch compiled current resource information for you.

If you choose to be tested through your care provider, please contact them directly for accessibility information.  The CityTest operated sites are accessible, and have written directions for those needing communication access.
