Santa Clara residents can get free COVID-19 tests at a pop-up testing site at the Central Park Library.
Earlier this summer, testing was done at the Northside Library.
Mayor Lisa Gillmor and Councilmember Teresa O’Neill made the announcement with this video.
The County Health Department has set up a new system to reduce the wait time.
People will register for a time slot online.
- Dates: Wednesday, Aug. 12; Wednesday, Aug. 26; Wednesday, Sept. 23; and Wednesday, Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Cost: free for everyone. There’s no health insurance or doctor’s note required.
