The County of San Diego has set up a drive-thru coronavirus screening station at San Diego's SDCCU Stadium but it's important to note that you must have an appointment to be screened. The screening station will be open Monday - Friday from 10:00am to 2:00pm to “Individuals who are referred to [testing] by a provider," said Doctor Wilma Wooten, the San Diego County Public Health Officer. "It is not for the general public to just drive-thru and say, 'Oh, I think I have COVID-19 symptoms or I think I might need a test.' That is not the process.”
If you have individual questions, please talk to your health care provider. For community resources, please call 2-1-1 San Diego or visit 211sandiego.org or the County’s Coronavirus Disease webpage.
