Where can you find COVID Testing Sites in the Inland Empire?
According to the 2000 U.S. Census, the Inland Empire is the fastest growing location in the state of California. The Metropolitan population of the Inland Empire (which includes the cities of Riverside, San Bernardino, Ontario) itself is more than 4.2 million people and is the 13th largest metropolitan area in the United States. Due to the size and population density of the Inland Empire, it is vital in the battle against COVID-19 to have a plethora of testing sites available to residents.
When to get tested for COVID-19
Receiving a COVID test is the only way to definitively know whether or not you have contracted COVID-19. If you are showing symptoms (such as a fever or a cough), or if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID, it is vital that you receive a test. There are currently two primary types of testing for the COVID-19 virus: the viral test (to test for a current infection), and the antibody test (to test for a past infection). Our testing sites offer the viral test for current infections and use a nasal swab to collect a sample. For the best results, it is ideal to wait three days after exposure for an initial test, and then again at ten days after exposure. It is important to quarantine yourself if you believe you have been exposed to COVID, or are waiting for test results.
