Riverside, CA – On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, health officials in Riverside County announced the opening of a third COVID-19 test site at the Harvest Christian Fellowship Church in Riverside.
The site which opened Wednesday, April 1st , will remain in operation for the foreseeable future. However, those who want to be tested must call (800) 945-6171 in advance for an appointment. Like with other test sites around the region, those wishing to get tested must have symptoms–drive-ups without appointments cannot be accommodated.
Some of the symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, sore throat, cough, runny nose or congestion. Those who have risk of exposure, in other words exposure to a confirmed case, may also be tested.
Riverside County also has testing sites at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio and at The Diamond Stadium in Lake Elsinore—at both locations you must call for an appointment.
“Riverside County continues to offer more options for residents to get tested,” said Vice Chair Karen Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “This third drive-up location will help ensure that those who have symptoms, have options to get tested.”
Those who want to be tested can call (800) 945-6171 and specify which location is preferable. Appointments for the Lake Elsinore site can also be made online at projectbaseline.com/study/covid-19.
