Coronavirus Testing now available for all Coachella Valley residents without symptoms

#CoronaVirus #Testing now available for all Coachella Valley and Riverside County residents without symptoms!!

Riverside County residents who do not have symptoms but want to be tested for coronavirus will now be able to after health officials modified the guidelines for testing.

Those who want to be tested must call (800) 945-6171 for an appointment. Drive-ups without appointments cannot be accommodated.

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County public health officer, said the modification of the testing criteria will allow anyone who wants to be tested the opportunity to see whether they have the illness.

About 30,000 tests have been administered so far at the county’s four community test sites, clinics, hospitals and other locations.
