Sacramento Free COVID-19 Testing Drive-Thru

Sacramento Free COVID-19 Testing Drive-Thru

On Tuesday, Sacramento County began taking appointments at a mobile site for high-risk individuals needing COVID-19 testing.

Online Screening Required

Those who complete the online test screening and qualify for an appointment will be given details and testing site location. Furthermore, walk-ins without an appointment will not be tested.

Verily is an Alphabet company owned by Google is offering the service free of charge to those 18 years or older.

Additionally, the California governor’s office, federal, state and local health officials are working with Verily to triage individuals into testing sites.

Testing By Appointment Only

People in need of testing must complete an online screening; the service is by appointment only. If screening results determine an individual to be high-risk, an appointment can be scheduled at a mobile facility for a nasal swab test. Then, Verily will receive test results within 48 to 72 hours.

Furthermore, Sacramento County is the fourth Verily mobile testing site in the state.  Additional locations include San Jose (Santa Clara County), San Mateo (San Mateo County) and Lake Elsinore (Riverside County).

Medical Care Not Provided

The drive-thru mobile testing is not for those in need of medical care.  Also, no acute treatment will be provided on-site. Those who are experiencing severe cough, shortness of breath and/or fever are advised to contact their primary care physician.

Additionally, health officials advise any individuals in need of direct medical assistance to also call their primary care provider as opposed to scheduling at the mobile site.
