The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has partnered with Primary.Health to launch a comprehensive antigen testing program. This program was established to help ensure the necessary COVID-19 testing is available to all California residents. Through this work, an interested testing site must enroll in the CDPH program, sign an agreement, complete virtual CLIA-waiver certification training, receive free antigen test kits, and complete Primary.Health registration and platform training.
