June 1, 2021 – SacCounty Enters Orange Tier with New Health Order
A new June 1, 2021 Sacramento County Health Order has been released that reflects the corresponding announcement by CDPH that Sacramento County has immediately qualified to enter the State’s Orange Tier 3 (moderate) in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The State of California is slated to expire the colored-tier structure for counties on June 15, 2021 and go Beyond the Blueprint.

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.
