A new COVID-19 testing site is now open in Chula Vista, offering 200 daily tests, five days per week, the County and the City of Chula Vista announced today.

The drive-up site will provide free, no-appointment diagnostic tests from 12:30 p.m. 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday at the South Chula Vista Library, located at 389 Orange Avenue.

The COVID-19 tests take about 5-10 minutes and the results come back in about three days.

People with and without symptoms who are at higher risk for COVID-19 should be tested. Healthcare and essential workers should also get a test, as well as people who had close contact to a positive case or live in communities that are being highly impacted.

Most County-organized testing sites are now appointment-free, with few a mix of appointments and no-appointments. Visit or call 2-1-1 for more information. You can view the testing sites by day here.
