Testing & Vaccines
When to get tested
If you have symptoms
Vaccinated or not, get tested immediately if you’re feeling any COVID-19 symptoms. If an antigen test is negative, take another in 24-48 hours, as early cases can be missed.
If you were exposed
If you were exposed, you should consider getting tested as soon as possible, even if you have no symptoms.
Test again 3-5 days after exposure.
If you go to a high-risk event
Test immediately before and 3-5 days after.
Read more about high-risk exposures within the CDC Exposure Risk guidance.
If you travel
Test as close to the time of departure as possible and 3-5 days after.
Vaccinated or not, anyone entering or re-entering California should test 3-5 days after arrival.
