Residents hoping to avoid crowded emergency rooms can be tested and treated for COVID-19 at clinics located throughout Riverside County. The clinics are free and health insurance is not required to be seen and treated.
The clinics are offered by Riverside University Health System- Public Health (RUHS-PH), in partnership with OptumServe.
“We continue to see significant impacts to our hospital emergency departments with individuals seeking COVID-19 testing and/or COVID-19 therapeutics,” Misty Plumley, program chief for Immunizations and Emergency Response, said. “We have an opportunity to remind the community that there are additional resources to assist with accessing COVID-19 testing and medications.”
The one-stop-shop allows patients to be tested for COVID-19, have a telehealth communication with a doctor and receive an oral antiviral treatment – all during the same visit. Like other regions throughout the state, Riverside County has seen a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases over the past several weeks.
Patients may walk in or make an appointment at https://lhi.care/covidtesting. Sites are available throughout Riverside County and can be found at www.ruhealth.org/public-health/covid-19-treatment-options.
