Three pop-up sites in Santa Clara County expand access to COVID-19 testing

Santa Clara County is continuing this week with its successful and in-demand pop-up COVID-19 testing program.

Three new sites will provide more access to local communities, following nearly 6,400 tests at pop-up sites last week. Testing is free of charge with no appointment necessary.

Pop-up sites, according to the county, are aimed at those working frontline jobs or those regularly interacting with the public. With the pop-ups, there are at least 57 COVID-19 testing sites in the county.

“This includes grocery store clerks, construction workers, retail associates, first responders, and other workers, as well as individuals who regularly ride public transit or have recently attended a mass gathering.”

“Our strategy is to bring testing to our residents in Santa Clara County and make it as easy as possible,” said Cindy Chavez, President of the County Board of Supervisors.

Three locations, including SAP Center

Pop-up testing sites this week include the following:

  • San Jose – Andrew Hill High School – 3200 Senter Rd., 95111
    • Open Tuesday, June 23 to Friday, June 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
  • Santa Clara – Northside Branch Library – 695 Moreland Way, 95054
    • Open Tuesday, June 23 to Friday, June 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Testing is also coming this week to the SAP Center. The site offers up to 1,000 tests per day from Tuesday, June 23 to Saturday, June 27. Hours are 1 to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Visitors to the SAP site for COVID-19 testing will receive team memorabilia for the Sharks or Barracuda.

“Although we cannot currently host and entertain the millions of sports and entertainment fans located throughout the Bay Area, it is important that we do our part to help reduce the transmission of this virus,” said Sharks Sports and Entertainment President Jonathan Becher.
