ALAMEDA COUNTY – Alameda County announced the launch of a free testing site that will expand testing available at the West Oakland Health Center, located at 700 Adeline Street. Scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 3 this site addresses an identified need to increase access to testing in West Oakland.
The hours of operation will be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm, and Saturdays 8:30 am – 12:30 pm.
“Alameda County’s clinics and faith-based organizations are critical partners for expanding testing in our communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Alameda County District 5 Supervisor Keith Carson. “By investing in this site, we are expanding access to testing in West Oakland and making progress toward reducing COVID-19 disparities.”
Testing will be free and available to anyone with symptoms, and to any health care, front line, or essential worker even if they have no symptoms. COVID-19 symptoms cough, fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or a new loss of taste or smell.
You do not need to have insurance and you will not be asked about immigration status.
In the ongoing effort to address testing disparities, Alameda County is leveraging its partnerships with community-based organizations and clinics, like the West Oakland Health Council, to ensure appropriate follow-up care and resources to support isolation and quarantine.
