Drive-through testing took place at Hayward Fire Station #7 on 3/25/20

 

Beginning this Thursday, San Franciscans who live in the Mission between South Van Ness and Harrison and Cesar Chavez and 23rd Street, can get tested for free.

 

Mission Local reports that fliers posted around the area urge all residents who are four years old and up to get tested regardless of symptoms. They can register for an appointment online or onsite. Testing will take place at local parks and schools and run until April 28th.

An official from UCSF, which is co-sponsoring the testing campaign says that although the city hasn't reported infection numbers by region, there are a lot of cases in the Mission District.

In Marin County today, the town of Bolinas began offering free COVID-19 tests for all of its nearly 2,000 residents. ABC7 News reports tests are being administered in Mesa Park and are drive-through only. Testing runs through Thursday.
