The Salinas community testing site now located at the Monterey County Ag Center, 1428 Abbott Street . The Greenfield community testing site is located at the Greenfield Branch of our Monterey County Free Libraries, 315 El Camino Real. Establishment of community diagnostic testing sites is powered through a partnership between the State of California with OptumServe, the federal government health services business of Optum, a leading health services innovation company. A nasal or throat swab will be collected and specimens will be sent to a FDA approved laboratory for COVID-19 PCR testing.
These two community testing sites are now open every week, Tuesdays to Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Initially we prioritized healthcare providers, first responders, and other front-line and essential workers including child care providers, grocery clerks, social service providers, construction workers, landscapers/gardeners, etc. The general public is now invited to register for an appointment. You do not need to be experiencing symptoms to be tested.
