Mobile Testing Site Open to Public
A Community-Based Testing Site (CBTS) for COVID-19 was set up in Sacramento County in the latter part of March. The site was spearheaded by the California Department of Public Health, verily, the California Office of Emergency Services and the Governor’s Office in coordination with Sacramento County Public Health.
Originally, the testing was targeted to people referred through a health care provider. Public Health is now encouraging anyone with mild to moderate symptoms to visit www.projectbaseline.com
to be screened for testing.
Those who meet testing eligibility will be scheduled for a drive-through appointment for free COVID-19 testing and will be sent details by email or phone on how and where to get tested.
The COVID-19 testing location is unable to take walk-ins and testing is by appointment only – those not registered will not be tested. Medical care is not provided on-site.
