COVID Testing at Moscone South

San Francisco Travel Association, the official destination marketing organization for the City and County of San Francisco, today opened a dedicated COVID-19 testing facility at Moscone Center to provide visitors, meeting attendees, and residents quick and easy access to affordable testing seven days a week.

Located in the heart of the city, the San Francisco Travel COVID Testing Center provides testing daily from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Testing hours can be expanded based on demand or to cater to attendees of mega-events in the city.

Operated by RokketMed, a certified COVID testing provider, the center will offer rapid antigen tests for $40 and rapid PCR tests for $150. Formal documentation for international travel or for access to venues requiring proof of a negative COVID test will be provided upon request at no additional charge.

The San Francisco COVID Testing Center is located on the ground floor of Moscone Center at 749 Howard Street. Testing will take less than five minutes, and results will be texted or emailed; formal supporting documentation for the test result will be provided upon request. The rapid antigen test provides results in 10 minutes or less, and the rapid PCR results take 30 minutes. Certified or licensed healthcare professionals will administer tests.

The Moscone Center is ready to safely host your in-person event!

We continue to remain fully committed to the safe protocols and practices that have been developed over the last several months and continue to be informed by the GBAC Star initiatives as well as ASM Globals own Venue Shield program.

As of April 1, 2022 the following regulations are in place regarding Mega-Events held in San Francisco. 

  • Vaccination & Testing Requirements
    Proof of Vaccination or Negative Testing is a Strong Recommendation Rather than a Requirement for Indoor Mega-Events.   Aligning with the change in State rules, the Order lifts the requirement that hosts or operators of indoor mega-events require proof of vaccination for patrons and staff as a condition to entry into an indoor mega-event (i.e., an event with 1,000 or more people attending),  and instead strongly recommends that hosts and operators continue to impose that requirement.

  • Masking Requirements
    In light of the high percentage of San Franciscans who are vaccinated and boosted, as well as the public health awareness acquired over the past two years, the Health Officer is transitioning the recommended wearing of face coverings from a strong recommendation that everyone – regardless of vaccination status - wear a mask while indoors with others, to an individual risk-centered approach.  The Health Officer now recommends that individuals wear a well-fitted mask in indoor public settings based on three factors:  (1) your own risk tolerance; (2) the overall level of community transmission, such as when future variants occur; and (3) whether you or someone with whom you work or live is at risk of severe disease. 
    • Masking is still required under federal and state rules, at least through April 15, for public transportation and indoor public transportation facilities.
    • And owners and operators of other individual facilities may still require masking.
