Free C-19 testing pop-up this Saturday in Sonoma Valley

Posted on September 14, 2020 by Sonoma Valley Sun
Sonoma Valley Community Health Center and Sonoma County will host free Pop Up Covid-19 testing at Altimira Middle School on Saturday, September 19, from 2 to 4 p.m.
The viral testing is first come, first served; no appointments necessary. No ID or Social Security Number required. Medical insurance not required, and the results are confidential.
The school is located at 17805 Arnold Drive. Can’t make it Saturday? See other options in Sonoma County.

Community-wide testing is a critical step toward re-opening the County, allowing public health officials to identify community transmission. This includes collecting a broad sample of results from people with or without symptoms. The County says 40% of people who test positive experience no symptoms (asymptomatic) but are still spreading the disease.

Getting tested does not automatically require a person to stay home and enter into quarantine or isolation. Only those persons who are symptomatic OR who are identified as a close contact (anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 48 hours before the person began to feel sick until the infected person was isolated) will be advised they must quarantine pending test results to prevent the spread of the virus and protect their family’s and the public’s health.
