Two new walk-up coronavirus testing sites opened in Riverside County
Riverside County health officials are adding two walk-in testing sites – one in
Moreno Valley and the other in Cathedral City -- for those interested in being
screened for coronavirus.
Testing at Crossword Christian Church in Moreno Valley and the Cathedral City
Public Library started Monday and will continue Monday through Friday from 8
a.m. until 4 p.m. The church is located at 21401 Box Springs Road, while the
library is located at 33520 Date Palm Drive.
These are the first walk-in sites operated by the county; the four others are drive up
sites located in Indio, Lake Elsinore, Perris and Riverside.
“As we continue our response to this epidemic, we have refocused our efforts to
test as many Riverside County residents as possible,” said Kim Saruwatari, director
of Riverside County public health. “These two sites and others that are in the
planning process will help reach that goal.”
So far, more than 80,000 Riverside County residents have been tested at the
county’s four sites, along with screenings at clinics, hospitals, private labs and
other locations. There are also eight state-run, walk-in testing sites located
throughout Riverside County.
Testing at the county-run sites is open to anyone, whether they have symptoms or
not, and there are no out-of-pocket costs to individuals. Participants will be asked
to provide information about their health insurance, but they will not be charged
any share of costs or copay, and will be allowed to get tested even if they do not
provide the insurance information. You must have an appointment to get tested.
