Public Health to host pop-up COVID-19 rapid testing events
Rapid testing helps residents ‘know before you go’ this Thanksgiving
–The County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department will host two COVID-19 Pop-Up Rapid Testing Events on Wednesday, Nov. 24, for community members to receive a free COVID-19 rapid test before the Thanksgiving holiday. Tests will be available while supplies last.
Tests are available to the first 250 people age two and older at each site; those under age 18 will need consent from a parent or guardian. Representatives from Public Health will be available for questions.
There will be a North County event at the Atascadero Lake Park Bandstand from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
In South County, there will be an event in Grover Beach at 16th Street Park from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Health officials urge residents to “know before you go” by getting a COVID-19 test before gathering this Thanksgiving so you can bring peace of mind – not the virus – to your celebration.
