OptumServe, which has been providing testing in Woodland and West Sacramento since the spring, will operate out of the Davis Senior Center from Aug. 25 to Sept. 30.

Testing at the senior center, 646 A St., will be open to all California residents regardless of documentation status and is by appointment only Tuesdays through Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Appointment slots are available by the week and open the Thursday before. To schedule an appointment, call 888-634-1123 or visit All ages are welcome.

For those who do not have health insurance, the cost of the test will be covered by the state. If residents have health insurance, their provider will be billed with no out-of-pocket cost.

Test results typically come back within a week of receipt from the lab, however, there may be some delays in getting results due to high demand and a testing backlog statewide, the county said.

The testing previously scheduled for the senior center on Aug. 27 has been canceled since the OptumServe testing will begin Aug. 25 at the same location.

Testing at the Elica Health Center (1276 Halyard Dr.) in West Sacramento, will continue to provide COVID-19 testing from August 17 to 28.

Testing at this location is only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. It is free and administered at a first come, first served basis.

Although registration is recommended to assist in speeding up the process, it is not required and does not guarantee a test. Residents who register online will not be able to select a time slot, nor receive a confirmation of receipt. Register online at

Participants must be residents of Yolo County and will need to bring a document displaying their name and address, such as a driver’s license, ID card, utility bill, or piece of mail. All ages are welcome.

Face coverings must be worn at both testing sites, and residents are expected to practice social distancing. The locations are not drive-thru testing sites.
