As COVID-19 testing continues to increase, there are more confirmed COVID-19 cases within the community. Sacramento County has 113 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and five who have died from complications of COVID-19. The five individuals who died from complications of COVID-19 were either older than 70 or had underlying health conditions.
Mobile COVID-19 Testing Site A Community-Based Testing Site (CBTS) for COVID-19 has been set up in Sacramento County and is being spearheaded by CDPH, Verily, CalOES and the Governor’s Office in coordination with Sacramento County Public Health.
This testing location at the outset will give immediate COVID-19 testing options to the healthcare providers and urgent care clinics in Sacramento County to refer health workers, first responders and patients with mild/moderate symptoms who are in the high-risk category for complications of COVID-19. As backlog begins to taper and capacity is established, an announcement will be made when testing is widened outside of provider referrals. People with severe symptoms, especially the elderly, should contact their health provider. Those who meet testing eligibility will be scheduled for a drive-through appointment for free COVID-19 testing and will be sent details by email or phone on how and where to get tested. The COVID-19 testing location is unable to take walk-ins and testing is by appointment only – those not registered will not be tested. Medical care is not provided on-site.
Sacramento County Public Health continues to work collaboratively with our healthcare providers and public health agencies to serve our communities and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
