Residents in portions of Southern California can be screened and make appointments online for drive-up coronavirus testing at The Diamond in Lake Elsinore, officials announced Sunday.
People living within 50 miles of Riverside who believe they are at risk for the coronavirus can screen symptoms and risk factors at the Baseline COVID-19 website, projectbaseline.com/covid-19, and if eligible, participate in testing at The Diamond, Riverside University Health System-Public Health Director Kim Saruwatari said.
People must be screened as high risk to make an appointment to be tested at The Diamond, which is unable to take walk-ins, Saruwatari said.
The drive-up testing at The Diamond will have additional test kits and equipment with this expansion, Saruwatari said. The testing at The Diamond began Saturday and had been scheduled to end Sunday, but is being extended, Saruwatari said.
“More people who need the test can get it,” Saruwatari said.
People in the eligible area may still call 800-941-6171 to make an appointment to be tested at The Diamond, but will soon be directed to the website for all appointments, Saruwatari said.
All appointments for the drive-up testing site in the Coachella Valley will continue to be made by telephone, Saruwatari said.
