Urgent Care & COVID-19

We realize that in addition to visiting our Urgent Care Department for minor emergencies, acute problems and urgent medical needs, you may have questions about what specific COVID-19 related care we offer.

We are following Santa Barbara County Public Health Department guidelines. Due to the volume of request for testing and limited resources, we are currently only testing patients who have COVID-19 symptoms or who have had close contact with someone who has tested positive.

  • If you are a Sansum Clinic patient with a primary care provider and you need a COVID-19 test, message your primary care provider through MyChart and they will assist with scheduling a test for you. If you need to sign up for MyChart, click here or call (805) 898-3333.
  • If you do not have a primary care provider or are not a Sansum Clinic patient, but need a COVID-19 test due to symptoms or exposure, go to Urgent Care located at 215 Pesetas Lane where you will be seen on a first come, first serve basis. Walk-ins are accepted daily, from 8:00 am – 7:00 pm.
