Testingforcovid.com is a free, not-for-profit, crowdsourced website for locating COVID-19 test sites throughout the United States. We are all volunteers, have no profit motive and collect no personal data from users.
Our mission: There is an urgent need for easily accessed, real-time accurate information about test sites including locations, hours and patient requirements. With the public's help, we aim to cover as many of the > 3,000 counties in the U.S. as possible with crowdsourcing efforts. We have a core commitment to privacy, so users provide no personal information and are not required to create any account to access or submit data. The team follows the CDC guidelines in real time and it is mandated that all live sites on our map are human-verified with news sources.
About us: Led by Louis Leung, Ph.D. (@louis_leung), with help from Jessica Meckmann (@meckimac) and Mike Emory, Ph.D., we are a growing group of scientists and engineers who developed this resource when considering the same question that is on the minds of millions of people in the US: what can I do to help? Louis earned his neuroscience Ph.D at the University of Cambridge, completed post-doctoral research at Stanford University publishing in the journal Nature in 2019, and now works for a Silicon Valley neuroscience start-up. Jessica is an IT director and entrepreneur. Mike received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Stanford, and is currently a research scientist and software engineer.
Privacy: From the outset, we believe strongly that the collection/storing of personal data (particulary medical) is simply not necessary to give access to such a resource. Our transparent commitment to you is that no personal data is collected and no cookies are set while using this service EXCEPT for a) your Internet Protocol (IP) address to provide anonymous usage statistics to improve the website, and b) the zipcode you (might) enter in order for us to provide you the appropriate mapping results. That's no name, age, address, phone number, email, login/password, medical insurance information, medical history or current symptoms required to use our locations resource!
As scientists, we might be committed to, and experts in, high quality data discovery, but we can't do this nearly quickly enough without your help (yes - YOU reading this!). You are vital to teach us about your local sites and to keep your data fresh! Join the testingforcovid coalition of volunteers today to:
Submit sites: Every single one of you are our eyes and ears on the ground whether you stay home and watch local news or go out for essential trips and notice a new testing site! Submitting a site is easy and can be done from the safety of your home, takes 5min and we promise you will feel great after your good deed!
Become a County Representative: Right now, we have > 2500 US counties without a single record of a drive-through test site - check the list here. We need to rapidly accelerate the crowdsourcing of the remaining sites. If you are from one of these counties, volunteer to BECOME OUR COUNTY REP on the ground. If you can give a bit more time to this mission, step up to spearhead "grassroots" efforts to gather and keep up-to-date local testing site information on behalf of your neighbors.
