Alameda County officials on Tuesday announced the launch of a new free Covid-19 coronavirus testing site opening in West Oakland this week.

The center will open at Wednesday and operate for four weeks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

County Supervisor Keith Carson said in a news release:

“By investing in this site, we are expanding access to testing in West Oakland and making progress toward reducing Covid-19 disparities.”

The testing will be free and available to any members of the public with possible symptoms of Covid-19, as well as any health care or other essential worker with no symptoms. Symptoms of the virus can include cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat or a new loss of taste or smell.

The testing is by appointment only and appointments can be made at https://www.oaklandca.gov/services/covid-19-testing. There are now 31 testing sites around Alameda County.
