Riverside County continues to offer drive-thru COVID-19 testing at Northgate Church, 30010 Date Palm Drive in Cathedral City. Testing is available each Tuesday between 9 AM and 4 PM. You must schedule an appointment to come and get tested.
All residents are encouraged to get tested, which helps public health officials identify cases and ultimately slow the spread of the virus by more effectively isolating those who are COVID positive so they can recover without passing the virus to others. Testing is for everyone, regardless of immigration status, insurance, or whether one has symptoms or not. There is no charge to the individual.
These mobile testing sites supplement the county-operated testing site at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio, and state-operated testing sites in Desert Hot Springs and Indio. Riverside County residents can also get tested at pharmacies, community health centers, nonprofit health clinics, hospitals, private testing sites, and Urgent Care locations.
