Population-Scale Testing for the City of San Francisco

In April 2020, the City of San Francisco partnered with Color to create a flexible testing model that allows the City to identify employees, essential workers and residents exposed to COVID-19, and route them immediately to testing.

“To achieve our goal of universal access, we have continually expanded testing, based on where the need is greatest and the availability of resources,” said Dr. Colfax, Director of Health in San Francisco. To that end, the City and Color have focused on flexibility to meet the changing testing needs of local workers and residents. This has included pop-up sites in hard-hit neighborhoods and mobile testing for skilled nursing facilities around the city.

Color’s seamless reporting structure provides results to individuals, primary care physicians, the California Department of Health and the San Francisco Department of Public Health to enable contact tracing and mitigate outbreaks.
