San Mateo County expands free COVID-19 testing sites

Posted on May 20, 2020 at 11:36 am by Clay Curtin

San Mateo County has expanded the number of COVID-19 testing sites operated by Verily to include locations in East Palo Alto at the YMCA on Fridays and Saturdays starting the week of May 18. Verily will continue to operate its San Mateo County Event Center site on Mondays and Tuesdays, while adding the old Serramonte High School campus in Daly City on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Testing is free and available without restriction to anyone, though an appointment is required in advance. To make an appointment, residents can visit the Project Baseline website. After being tested, residents will receive results and other information by email. San Mateo County Health will reach out to residents who test positive.

The expanding of testing sites is part of the County’s strategy to bring more resources to more locations. The new sites, in the northern and southern parts of the county, will make it easier for residents to access free testing.

The County can help residents who lack transportation to a test site. After being screened at the Project Baseline website and receiving an appointment time, individuals with no other means to reach the testing site can call 650-779-9375 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to arrange free transportation.
