On the weekends, if you are COVID-positive and looking for COVID-related medicines or medical advice, consider contacting someone on your healthcare team or going to an urgent care clinic. The Emergency Department at Tahoe Forest is open 7 days a week.

Free COVID-19 Testing

Free COVID-19 testing is now available through an independent company in Truckee at the Old Gateway Center at 10990 Donner Pass Road. 

Testing is free to all, and it is not necessary to have symptoms of COVID-19 in order to receive a test. Anyone in a public-facing job, headed back to work, at a higher risk, or just concerned about COVID-19 exposure is encouraged to get tested.

Accepting undocumented, uninsured, and homeless.

Pre-registration is required and can be done at or by calling 888-634-1123.

Please note: The testing location is run by an independent company, not Tahoe Forest Health System. Please direct all inquiries to 888-634-1123 or visit for more information.
