While information is rapidly changing, and experts are learning more every day, below are some resource links that address COVID-19 concerns. As more information and resources become available, we will continue to update this page.

Sacramento County Health Order to Align with Purple/Tier 1
On Jan. 12, the State of California announced that the Greater Sacramento region is permitted to exit the State’s Regional Stay at Home Order with a four week ICU availability projection of 19 percent. Counties in the Greater Sacramento region can resume operating under the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy tier structure.  Based on the State’s tier criteria, Sacramento County will be in Tier 1/Purple.

Elk Grove Community COVID-19 Testing Center

Location:             9362 Studio Court, Elk Grove, CA 95758
Days:                    Tuesday through Saturday
Times:                  7am – 7pm

To make an appointment, patients will need to complete an online registration process, which will require them to answer a handful of screening questions and create a username and password (about a 10-15 minute process).

People will need to make appointments in advance and if they show up without one, I believe they’ll be instructed to make one on their phone.  There are no age restrictions as long as the test can be safely performed.  More details and other information on the testing process are available in these FAQs.
