Press Release

State Testing Site in West Sacramento Extended to July 3rd

(Woodland, CA) – Previously extended to June 27, the no-cost Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) testing site in West Sacramento, run by OptumServe in conjunction with the State of California, will be extended an additional week to Friday, July 3.

The site has been located in West Sacramento since June 2 and, with this extension to July 3, will be in West Sacramento a total of five weeks. The OptumServe site was previously in Woodland for four weeks of testing, from May 5 – 30. As of June 22, a total of 3,507 residents have been tested through OptumServe in Yolo County, with 1,856 people being tested in Woodland and 1,651 in West Sacramento. The County is working on extending the OptumServe testing site in Yolo County and moving the location based on accessibility and health data.

Testing is by appointment only and can be made by calling (888) 634-1123 or completing an online application at: https://lhi.care/covidtesting. Testing is open to anyone in the community regardless of documentation status. If residents do not have health insurance, the cost of the test will be covered by the state. If residents have health insurance, their provider will be billed with no out of pocket cost.

This is not antibody testing; this is to test if individuals currently have COVID-19. Children under the age of 12 will not be tested at this location due to health and safety reasons. Residents must wear a face covering to their appointment and practice social distancing. This location is not a drive-thru so residents will need to park their car and walk a short distance to the building. OptumServe will be able to test up to 135 people a day with test results available within 48 to 72 hours. 

Residents can also call Yolo 2-1-1 for resource information. Click on Governor Newsom’s announcement information for community testing in underserved areas.
