COVID-19 Information (Novel Coronavirus 2019)
A Message from our County:
On 6/18/2020 Governor Newsom announced that face coverings are required in public spaces. Starting June 18, Californians must wear face coverings in common and public indoor spaces and outdoors when distancing is not possible. Learn more about the guidance and limited exceptions here.
There is a COVID-19 Testing site sponsored by the State of California Office of Emergency Services and run by OptumServe that is opened as of Tuesday, May 05, 2020 at 7am.
This will not only help individuals who are symptomatic have a smoother pathway for getting tested, but also allow us to routinely test healthcare professionals, first responders, and others who may have regular contact with the public.
We highly recommend that team members who have contact with the public get tested once every 14 days.
Site Location: Mariposa Alternative Education Site: 5171 Silva Rd, Mariposa, CA 95338
Testing site hours: Tuesday - Saturday from 7am-7pm.
To schedule an appointment please call 1-888-634-1123 or visit https://www.lhi.care/covidtesting
The test is free and you do not need a doctor referral to test. Tests are done by appointment only. You must register for an appointment before arriving to the facility.
This is NOT a serology test.
You do not have to be a Mariposa County resident to get tested.
You do not have to be showing symptoms to get tested.
If you need assistance with transportation, please call our COVID-19 Information Line at 209-259-1332
