Beginning, Tuesday, October 20th, FREE COVID-19 testing will be available in Seaside Tuesday through Saturday from 8 am to 8 pm. The testing site will be at Seaside High School at 220 Noche Buena Street.
This testing service is provided in partnership with California Department of Public Health and OptumServe. The State sponsored testing sites are required to meet an 85% utilization rate. Unfortunately, the site in Greenfield has not been well utilized in the last couple of months and the State is supportive of relocating the testing site to another area in the County with limited access to testing services. The last day of testing at the Greenfield location will be Saturday, October 17th from 8 am to 7 pm.
Testing is open to individuals with symptoms and without symptoms. Testing is recommended for healthcare workers, first responders, caretakers to high risk individuals, individuals considered close contacts to others with COVID-19, and anyone that is concerned that they may have been exposed to COVID-19.
COVID-19 testing will still be available in South County at seven locations in Greenfield, Gonzales, King City, and Soledad. Reservations should be made in advance at these sites. State supported sites, including the other one in the county at the Cesar Chavez Library in Salinas, accept walk ins and appointments. Appointments to get tested may be made by visiting https://lhi.care/covidtesting
or by calling 1-888-634-1123.
Please bring a legal identification if you have one to help ensure contact information is captured correctly for results reporting.
