While case numbers continue to rise in the region, COVID-19 testing remains in high demand. Health leaders see the ramped up testing regime as critical to the eventual reopening of more sectors of the economy.
To make it easier for residents to access testing, this week there is both by-appointment and walk-up testing available. All of the testing is free and does not require symptoms or doctor referral.
“We offer various testing options to give people a variety of avenues by which they can get tested for COVID-19 in Santa Clara County,” said Dr. Marty Fenstersheib, COVID-19 Testing Officer for the County of Santa Clara.
Pop-up sites do not require an appointment but instead give out wristbands for hour-long time slots later in the day. To see what the testing experience is like at a pop-up site, see the county video here.
