San Gabriel, CA – To improve our region’s COVID-19 testing capacity, the City of San Gabriel is partnering with Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE) to offer free COVID-19 tests for San Gabriel residents and the San Gabriel Valley community. Testing will be held at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse at 320 South Mission Drive on January 8, 9, 12 to 16 and 19 to 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Working in coordination with Los Angeles County, CORE will provide a non-painful family-friendly, oral swab test through their mobile testing center. No ID or insurance is required and results will be given to participants within 48 hours via text or email.
“Given the surge in COVID-19 cases, it’s crucial that we offer ample opportunity for our community to get tested,” said San Gabriel Mayor Denise Menchaca. “We’re very thankful to be working with CORE to provide a much-needed testing location for our region.”
Appointments are highly encouraged and time slots will be released on a staggered basis on Curative.com/sites/17868
