COVID-19
 TESTING

We have partnered with over 30 Community Based Org’s, SF Unified School District, the California Department of Health, the San Francisco Department of Health and the Department of Children, Youth and Families to deliver free, ongoing rapid antigen and PCR COVID-19 testing. Our focus is on low-income BIPOC children, youth and families disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. We also offer testing support for community events when possible.

Since March 2021,
 

WE OFFER THREE MAIN TESTING PROGRAMS

1

SCREENING

At partner sites, Safer Together provides the staff and equipment to administer free rapid antigen tests so children, youth, families and staff can participate in social, academic, and sports gatherings safely.

2

SELF 
ADMINISTRATION

 

We train partner staff to provide testing for their organization with our test kits, support and management. This way, we build community capacity and self-determination.

3

MOBILE RAPID RESPONSE
 

Our care navigation includes supporting our partners when they have symptomatic individuals, positive cases and potential exposures by scheduling follow up testing on-site and meeting community where they are.

We use Abbott BinaxNow rapid antigen test kits provided by the California Department of Public Health.

We also use Cepheid PCR instruments in house and can run 4plex (Flu A&B, SARS-CoV-2, RSV) tests to aid diagnosis when needed.

Interested in partnering with us? Please email info@safer-togeter.org.

When we are at capacity we keep a waiting list for after funding is secured to scale and support more partners. 

 

We are also happy to provide information and consulting around testing resources and COVID-19. 

 

We encourage you to advocate for our government to keep funding COVID-19 prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery!
