A temporary mobile COVID-19 testing site is coming to the Arcata Community on Aug. 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., just after Humboldt County hit a grim milestone in July, reaching 100 confirmed cases, the highest of any month to date.
To make an appointment in Arcata, call 268-2503.
Free testing for those without symptoms is also available at the testing site at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in Eureka. With a high demand for testing sometimes impacting the availability of appointments, members of the public are encouraged to continue checking back with Optumserve by visiting https://Lhi.care/covidtesting or calling (888) 634-1123.
Delayed results are also being experienced in Humboldt County and across the nation.
Individuals with symptoms or who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 are asked to call their health care provider or call the Joint Information Center at 441-5000.
