This new location brings the total number to six testing sites in South County and is part of the County’s South Bay Saturation strategy. Additional testing sites are located in San Ysidro, Chula Vista (two) and National City (two).

Testing at all sites is free and can be done by appointment. Testing will be done for people with symptoms or those in high-risk priority groups.
