Community Sites Partner with New Testing Supplier​ Starting July 20 - COVID-19 Testing Returning to Sacramento Neighborhoods

Sacramento County and UC Davis Health worked to secure needed testing supplies and lab services from StemExpress​ that will start the week of July 20 at the Community-Based COVID-19 Testing Sites. The re-launch of the partnership provides much-needed service to expand testing that is critical to offer accessible testing led by and within the diverse neighborhoods of Sacramento County.  

Each of the five Community-Based Testing sites to launch next week will have 100 tests per day for this first week starting July 20 to transition to the new system, which is expected to scale up the testing capacity to 1,500.  UC Davis Health will continue collecting the specimens at each test site and StemExpress will host a new registration system for all Community-Based sites that will provide test results. StemExpress is expected to be able to turnaround testing results within 72 hours – providing critical information to patients that may be COVID-19 positive. 

Testing at all Community-Based sites will be by appointment only, and priority will be given to those on waitlists and/or had cancellations. For testing locations and appointment details visit our COVID-19 Tes​ting webpage ​(appointment scheduling ​details and link will be updated on 7/16).
