Monkeypox (MPX) testing in Sonoma County

En español »

When to Get Tested

  • Currently, testing is only recommended if you have a rash consistent with mpox.
  • If you think you have mpox or have had close personal contact with someone who has mpox, consider taking precautions and visit a healthcare provider to help you decide if you need to be tested for mpox.

Where to Get Tested

  • Only a healthcare provider can order an mpox test. The healthcare provider may take a specimen and send it to a lab for testing or they may send you to a lab for both specimen collection and testing.
  • Contact your health care provider. There are currently no mpox testing facilities set up for those without insurance. This will be updated when public testing becomes available.
