Where to get the COVID-19 test
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the county has been unable to keep up with the growing demand for testing.
On Wednesday, Dr. Penny Borenstein, a public health official, asked that only community members with COVID-19 symptoms and those working in high-risk environments (such as basic workers and collective living facility workers) be tested.
The pop-up test clinic will consist of county employees and will be analyzed in the Ministry of Public Health’s laboratory, which has recently increased its testing capacity to 300 tests per day.
In addition to the pop-up test event, the ongoing sites at Grover Beach and San Luis Obispo also provide free COVID-19 testing.

▪ Bishop St. Louis: Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm. Roewe Memorial (Grand Ave 801).
