OptumServe will be able to test up to 135 people a day with test results available within 48 to 72 hours. Please note this is not antibody testing; this is to test if individuals have COVID-19.
Following Governor Gavin Newsom’s announcement to add more than 80 community testing sites across the state focused on underserved communities, testing for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) began May 5 in Yolo County at the Fairgrounds in Woodland. That location has completed more than 5,000 tests, and will be shut down after tomorrow, May 30, 2020.
