Free Covid-19 Testing at Central Park Library

By Robert Haugh

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.
  • For more details, visit or call 2-1-1.

Editor’s Note: The City received new information from the County of Santa Clara regarding the Covid-19 testing. We will update the article when we have more details. (4 p.m. Tuesday, August 4).

On Wednesday, August 5 at 5:17 p.m., we updated the video link.

  1. Thanks Santa Clara for doing this. I wanted the opportunity to get tested. I had no symptoms, but thought it was a great opportunity to just get tested.
    The event was very well run. I did as instructed and made my appointment online. I arrived a few minutes early. I was actually in and out within 5 min. The results were then emailed to me within 50 hours. I encourage all Santa Clara residents to take this opportunity. This is just another example of why I love living in this City.
    Thank you again for hosting these types of events.
