The city has been testing people since the pandemic began in March, but the recent uptick in cases has many going to get tested.

On Wednesday the testing site closed at 12:30 p.m.

The testing site at Cal State East Bay is open Monday through from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but keep in mind they will close early if all available testing kits are used for the day.
