Riverside County expands coronavirus testing

Riverside County expands its COVID-19 testing capacity with the addition of a drive-up testing site at Storm Stadium in Lake Elsinore.

Riverside County is expanding its COVID-19 testing capacity in western Riverside County as part of the California Community-Based Testing Program (CBTS).

Residents who live within 50 miles of the City of Riverside can now screen symptoms and risk factors online and, if eligible, participate in a drive-up testing program at Storm Stadium, 500 Diamond Dr., Lake Elsinore.

People must be screened as high risk to make an appointment and the site is unable to take walk-ins. To schedule an appointment, call 800-945-6171 or visit

“We are excited about this expansion of testing capacity because it allows us to ramp up our responsiveness to our communities,” Riverside University Health System – Public Health Director Kim Saruwatari said in a statement. 

“As a California Community-Based Testing Site, Riverside County residents will be able to screen their symptoms and risk-factors online and, if eligible, schedule a testing appointment using the Baseline website. This means that the more people who need the test can get it.”

The drive-up testing in Lake Elsinore will have additional test kits and equipment with this expansion, county officials said.
