Increased access to testing for COVID-19 is essential to continued reopening efforts, according to local health experts.
Santa Clara County has been increasing pop-up testing locations across the county, expanding access to many communities.
Cupertino is next up, with free testing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, June 16-18 at Creekside Park. Testing is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. No doctor’s referral is necessary to get a test.
“I encourage all of our residents to take advantage of this free service and get tested whether you feel ill or not,” Cupertino Mayor Steven Scharf said.
The County Public Health Department, Valley Medical Center, and City of Cupertino set up the testing at 10455 Miller Ave. It will be located within the park building. Safety protocols, including social distancing and mask wearing, are required.
“I’d like to thank the Public Health Department and Valley Medical Center for offering the City of Cupertino and neighboring communities access to increased testing and effective containment of the virus,” Cupertino Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Thomas Chin said.
