Santa Clara County set to open COVID-19 test sites in San Jose, Gilroy

Santa Clara County plans to open two COVID-19 testing sites this week in underserved areas – one at James Lick High School in San Jose and the other at Christopher High School in Gilroy.

“As much as we’ve had a bottleneck throughout the nation on testing, this is a big day,” said county Supervisor David Cortese. “This is a sign of things to come.”

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s drive to open 80 testing sites statewide reached the county with the introduction of the sites. Operated by OptumServe, the sites will provide tests to residents of the surrounding neighborhoods with COVID-19 symptoms. The service is free to all, including those without insurance or permanent citizenship status.
