COVID-19 Information and Updates
Free COVID Test Kits Available at Four Sites
De Anza students and employees are eligible to get up to four at-home COVID-19 test kits – free of charge – from Santa Clara County, by registering to pick up the kits at one of four local sites.
Update: As of Jan. 26, all pickup times have been booked. More slots are expected to be added, so keep checking at sccfreetest.org for additional times.
You must register in advance at sccfreetest.org in order to pick up your tests at one of these sites:
- Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills – Parking Lot 6
- Hellyer County Park, 985 Hellyer Ave., San José
- Martial Cottle Park, 5283 Snell Ave., San José
- Vasona County Park, 333 Blossom Hill Road, Los Gatos
The antigen test kits are available for pickup through Saturday, Jan. 29 – but only for those who sign up for an appointment to pick them up.
Anyone who lives, works or attends school in Santa Clara County is eligible to obtain these at-home antigen test kits. The county was able to purchase a limited supply of the kits for distribution. This is separate from the federal program in which you can sign up at covidtests.gov for free tests that will be mailed to your home.

Student Health Services
Current students can visit the Health Services virtual clinic for services. The virtual clinic uses online video that is HIPAA-compliant for privacy and security, so students can talk with a health care provider about issues including women’s health, birth control, community resources and referrals. To schedule an appointment, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You can also visit Wellness Central, an online resource for students.
