DATE CHANGE: Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing in Clearlake the Week of Tuesday, May 12

Lake County, CA (May 8, 2020) – As reported in yesterday’s press release, the Public Health Division of the Health Services Department, is operating their own drive thru Coronavirus sampling site as well as diligently pursuing having an independent sampling entity, Verily, set up operations within the county. Given the speed at which this planning is taken place, it is necessary to revise the hours that the Health Department’s drive thru site will be operating next week.  We originally released that the sampling/testing clinics in Clearlake would operate on Tuesday from 11-1, and on Thursday from 10-1. The dates for next week’s Coronavirus sampling clinics will be changed to Tuesday, from 11-1, and Wednesday, 10-1. This change, while inconvenient, will allow us to facilitate the opening of additional testing sites and dates next week through Verily.

We regret any inconvenience this change may cause.

For the week of May 11th, please continue to call the MHOAC line at 707-263-8174 to be transferred to a staff member for screening and registration.

Additional details regarding the upcoming expansion of sampling/testing opportunities will be announced as they are arranged.

Additional information and forms are posted on the Public Health Website, at
