BERKELEY, Calif. (KRON) — Berkeley Public Health is offering COVID-19 testing with mouth swabs at a two-day walk-up site.
Health officials are piloting a new test kiosk where people can swab their own mouth and place it in a receptacle, all while under supervision, in an effort to increase the speed and availability of COVID-19 testing.
The kiosk will be at San Pablo Park in Berkeley on Wednesday, July 29 and Thursday, July 30.

Test results are expected within 24-48 hours.
The City of Berkeley is working with Curative Inc., which has been approved by the state to provide saliva-based testing, which has been used in Los Angeles County for drive-up tests.
