The City of Alhambra will begin offering a second round of COVID-19 testing for residents starting on Monday.
“In light of the increased spread of COVID-19 throughout the Los Angeles County region in the last few weeks,” said Mayor Ross Maza, “it’s important to increase access to testing for residents of Alhambra.”
Alhambra residents can start making appointments through the city’s website at https://www.cityofalhambra.org/resources/coronavirus-testing to get tested.
Residents can drive or walk to Second Street and Main Street behind Alhambra High School, to get the free nasal swab. The site is open Monday – Saturday, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., July 20th through August 11th by appointments only.
The site is staffed by Vital Medical Services. The testing process takes between 5 and 10 minutes but wait times may vary. Results will be returned within 12 – 48 hours.
Funding for the second round of testing is made available under the CARES Act.
The City held the first round of COVID-19 testing in May and tested a total of 1,599 residents that month.
