Just a reminder, we are only testing on Wednesdays from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm.  The test site is now located at 4308 Birch, Mountain Mesa. We will have signage out by the street. The easiest way to enter would be McCray Rd., to Dogwood – make a left and another left onto Birch. The building is next door to Mountain View Health Center.  ,

No appointments will be necessary. This is a drive-thru testing site and you will stay in your car and wait for staff to direct you to pull up. We ask that you put your car in park once you are in position for testing. Please inform our staff if you are experiencing symptoms.

We want to remind you this test is at “no cost” to our community and we encourage those who wish to test to take advantage of this opportunity.

We remind everyone to continue washing your hands often and avoid touching your face, practice social distancing and wear a face- mask.
