CORONA VIRUS UPDATES
Local COVID-19 Testing Dear Neighbor,
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to share an additional resource that may be helpful to you and your family. One of the main concerns I have heard from my constituents throughout the outbreak is uncertainty in the process and availability of testing for COVID-19. I share these concerns and I am pleased to announce that Verily’s Project Baseline has begun offering testing in Riverside County.
Western Riverside County residents can screen symptoms and risk factors online, and if eligible, make appointments to be tested. If you live within a 50 mile radius of the testing site, are presenting symptoms of COVID-19 and believe that you should be tested, I encourage you to visit their website to determine your eligibility. Screening and testing availability can be reviewed here .
Testing is being conducted at The Diamond Stadium in Lake Elsinore, which has been designated as a Community-Based Testing Site. These sites are directed by the state of California and are federally supported. In order to qualify to be tested, you must be screened as high risk. Additionally, you must make an appointment as the site is unable to take walk-ins. To make an appointment please visit projectbaseline.com/covid19 or call 800-945-6171.
For up to date resources and information, please visit my COVID-19 resource page at calvert.house.gov/COVID-19 , and to receive COVID-19 updates to your inbox, please sign up for my eNewsletters here . I will continue to update you as information becomes available, and I will continue to work with my colleagues in Washington to ensure that the American people, and especially Riverside County, have the resources they need to stay healthy and come back from this pandemic stronger than ever.
