The City of Santa Clara is holding free COVID-19 testing at the Northside Branch Library, 695 Moreland Way, starting Tuesday, June 23 to Friday, June 26 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. This testing site is in partnership with the County of Santa Clara.
Appointments are not needed at this pop-up location in Santa Clara. COVID-19 testing is free to everyone — no health insurance or a doctor’s note is required. It does not impact one’s immigration status, according to the City.
If you would like to come and receive a test, remember to wear a face covering at the testing site and practice social distancing. At the site you will get a free nasal swab test.
According to County public health officials, pop-up locations are most appropriate for individuals who do not have any symptoms but who are at higher risk because they work in frontline settings or because they’ve had significant interaction with members of the public. This includes grocery store clerks, construction workers, retail associates, first responders and other workers, as well as individuals who regularly ride public transit or have recently attended a mass gathering.
Frontline workers are encouraged to get tested regularly. The County recommends that if you have regular interaction with the public, you should be tested at least once a month.
The only other place to get tested in the City of Santa Clara is at the Kaiser Hospital where you must be a Kaiser member to receive a test.
