A drive-up testing site opened today at the old Sears parking lot in Riverside to replace the testing location at Harvest Christian Fellowship that is closing. The department store site is located near the intersection of Arlington and Streeter avenues.
“We want to thank Harvest Christian for everything they did to support the testing of Riverside County residents,” said Kim Saruwatari, director of Public Health. “Thousands of people have been tested there and that could not have happened without the support of the church leadership and local community.”
There are four walk-up and four drive-up sites operated by the county and eight walk-up sites operated by the state at various locations throughout the county. Testing is open to anyone, whether they have symptoms or not, and there are no out-of-pocket costs to individuals. An appointment is required.
“Testing continues to be an important driver in our public health response, as well as the county’s reopening process,” said Vice Chair Karen Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “Everyone should consider getting tested. It’s free and it helps show that we are a healthy county.”
