San Bernardino County Partners with State Testing Taskforce to Increase Testing
Governor Newsom recently announced the addition of more than 80 community testing sites across the state to provide more testing to underserved communities and three of those sites will be in the Victor Valley area of San Bernardino County.
A partnership with the California Department of Public Health and OptumServe enables the county to open the additional sites and serve more residents.
“These testing sites will help San Bernardino County dramatically increase testing needs for individuals who have had limited access to COVID-19 tests up until now,” said Trudy Raymundo, Director of Public Health for San Bernardino County. “We’re thrilled to partner with the state and OptumServe to help ensure our communities are healthy, while also helping meet California’s testing goals.”
Testing will be by appointment only for any individuals with or without symptoms of COVID-19. Appointments can be made by visiting https://lhi.care/covidtesting or by calling 1-888-634-1123. Please note that phone registration will only be used for people without internet access.
Testing is free for all individuals, including those who are uninsured, underinsured, undocumented, or homeless. Individual testing results are confidential.
