Sacramento County residents can soon get tested for COVID-19 at four new sites

Local News

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Residents of Sacramento County will soon be able to get tested for COVID-19 at four new testing sites.

A release sent out Thursday by the county said free testing will be available Monday through Thursday at sites in Foothill Farms, Folsom, Galt and Rancho Cordova.

Testing at three of the locations will begin Aug. 3 and appointment slots have already been made available online.

The fourth site at the Folsom-Cordova Community Partnership Center will start testing residents on Aug. 11.

The Sacramento County Department of Health Services, UC Davis and local agencies have teamed up to open the new sites following the closure and subsequent reopening of five other sites in the county.

StemExpress is now providing the supplies and services for those sites after shortages of test tubes and the liquid in the tubes caused them to temporarily shutter, according to Sacramento County Health Services Director Dr. Peter Beilenson.

County officials say test results should be available within three days of testing.

All Sacramento County residents ages 2 years and older, regardless of citizenship status, can make an appointment and get tested.
