Santa Clara County, CA – County of Santa Clara Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody today issued a new health order requiring all large healthcare systems in Santa Clara County offer COVID-19 testing to patients within their systems who need to be tested right away because they have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, or who need to be tested frequently because they are at higher risk of exposure. Many of these large healthcare systems are already making testing available to these patients, but all large healthcare systems in the county need to provide this level of care to their patients.
