A free drive-up coronavirus testing program sponsored by Google’s sister company Verily is now up and running at Sacramento’s Cal Expo.

Tuesday marked the soft opening for the drive-through testing initiative, called Project Baseline, expanding into Sacramento County. The initiative is aimed at closing the gap on the dearth of testing conducted across California for COVID-19, the potentially deadly disease caused by the virus that has infected more than 2,400 people in California as of Tuesday afternoon.

But the Verily testing is still limited. People can’t just drive up to Cal Expo to get tested, and anyone without an appointment will be turned away.

Instead, Verily uses a website to screen patients, asking interested people to fill out a questionnaire to see if they qualify for the in-person test.
