We’ve Expanded Drive-Thru Testing

Release Date: 2020-04-17

We are more than tripling our drive-thru testing capacity starting tomorrow and can now do more than 500 tests daily at the following locations:

- Long Beach City College, Pacific Coast Campus

- Jordan High School

- Cabrillo High School

- St. Mary Medical Center

Expanding testing has been a huge priority and these three new sites along with our Long Beach City College location will enable us to perform more than 500 tests per day. We are not waiting around for more tests to arrive but are actively purchasing our own to take care of Long Beach.

The two new City testing sites at Jordan and Cabrillo High Schools will operate seven days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. until further notice and will be available at Jordan High School, 6500 Atlantic Ave. (entrance on Atlantic Avenue), and Cabrillo High School, 2001 Santa Fe Ave. (entrance on Santa Fe Avenue at W. Willard Street)

Testing will be available at both sites by appointment only. Same or next day testing appointments will be open to all who are symptomatic. While testing is prioritized for individuals who are older than 65 years of age or have underlying chronic health conditions, it is available to anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms.

Additionally, the St. Mary Medical Center testing site, located at 1050 Linden Avenue, expects to test approximately 200 people per day at the facility, which will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
