“Starting Wednesday, Orange County residents will be able to get tested at no cost for COVID-19 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
…The testing will be offered 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays — by appointment only — for anyone who has symptoms, workers in essential occupations like nurses, doctors and first responders, and those who have been exposed to someone with coronavirus. Also, food industry workers and residents and employees of skilled nursing facilities will be able to get tested.
…Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu told the supervisors that he is “proud” the city is partnering with the county on testing with a goal of “opening it up to many more.”
He added, “This will help us address a surge of cases in the community and across Orange County. It will allow us to get back to reopening (the economy) safely when the time is right.”….”
