A self-administered COVID-19 Test Kiosk from Curative will be at Berkeley Adult School parking lot at 1701 San Pablo, Berkeley for a full week. Testing is available Tuesday, Aug. 18 through Sunday, Aug. 23, from 9 am to 12 pm and from 1 pm to 5:30 pm. Read the full press release from the City of Berkeley.

Make an appointment online. Test results are expected within 24-48 hours.

This is a walk-up kiosk, where people can swab their own mouth and place it in a receptacle, all while under supervision. Over the eight previous days, the kiosk has led to testing of about 300 people a day.

Kiosk Pilot Expands Access To Testing

Curative, Inc is a California-based company supplying the self-administered oral fluid COVID-19 test. The Curative test is widely used for drive-up and walk-up testing across the country, processing approximately 70,000 COVID-19 samples per day.

This pilot, which offers the same test in a walk-up kiosk, is part of the City’s efforts to expand access to testing for everyone in our community
