We are all working diligently to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community by wearing masks, social distancing, and taking other necessary precautions. Thank you for your hard work! Another way to help is with COVID testing. It is easy, free, and nearby at a variety of convenient sites in the County. Because case rates have recently increased in Ventura County and other nearby counties, and the holidays are approaching, we are encouraging all Ventura County residents to get tested frequently starting now and throughout the holiday season. As you know, testing and tracing are key tools in stopping the spread of COVID-19. The testing sites will be open on Veterans Day. View the full schedule here.

Our COVID-19 testing sites have been expanded with increased capacity. We recommend getting tested as often as necessary and even weekly. The test is quick, easy, and painless, suitable for children and adults, and results usually arrive in about 24-48 hours.
