Pop-up COVID-19 testing returning to Sunnyvale

As COVID-19 case counts continue to rise across Santa Clara County, getting testing is as important as ever.

County health officials are continuing the popular pop-up testing program to enhance community access to testing in their area.

“Convenience is key,” said County Supervisor Joe Simitian. “If we want more people to be tested, making locally available and convenient sites is essential.”

From Tuesday, June 30 to Thursday, July 2 the county will offer pop-up testing again in Sunnyvale. Run at Murphy Park, testing runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

“Adequate testing and tracing are a critical requirement as we move forward with opening up our cities and County,” said Sunnyvale Mayor Larry Klein.

Testing at this site is free, with no appointment necessary. Anyone can get a test, regardless of whether they do or do not have symptoms.

Simitian also recently announced no-cost testing in partnership with Planned Parenthood in Mountain View. The drive-thru site is open from Monday to Thursday at Shoreline Athletic Fields, 2450 Garcia Ave.

That site’s hours are Mon-Wed from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. On Thursdays the site is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Insurance is not required at the testing site.
