No appointment is needed; walk-in clients are accepted. AECCS uses the OraQuick Rapid tests to provide confidential results within 30 minutes.

    The completely confidential testing process requires an oral swab and involves pre- and post-test counseling with a California State Certified Counselor.

Clients may request a written result with their name; such documentation may be required by courts or other HIV/AIDS providers.
