Community Sites Partner with New Testing Supplier
Sacramento County and UC Davis worked to secure needed testing supplies and lab services from StemExpress that will start the week of July 20 at the Community-Based COVID-19 Testing Sites. The re-launch of the partnership provides a much-needed service to expand testing that is critical to offer accessible testing led by and within the diverse neighborhoods of Sacramento County.
Each of the five Community-Based Testing site launched next week will have 100 tests per half-day for this first week starting July 20 to transition to the new system, which is expected to scale up the testing capacity to 1,500. UC Davis will continue collecting the specimens at each test site and StemExpress will host a new registration system for all Community-Based sites that will include providing results. StemExpress is expected to be able to turnaround testing results within 72 hours – providing critical information to patients that may be COVID-19 positive.
Testing at all Community-Based sites will be by appointment only, and to start, priority will be given to those on waitlists and/or had cancellations. For testing locations visit our COVID-19 Testing webpage. Appointment details will be updated soon.
