Sunday, Feb. 5 marked the last day of service provided by the OptumServe COVID-19 test-to-treat mobile bus in Yolo County.
Last Wednesday, the county reported the service would close as state funding for it has been closed out as part of the planned ending of California’s COVID-19 state of emergency on Feb. 28.
Yolo County’s Health and Human Services Agency will continue to provide free COVID-19 antigen tests at numerous locations across Yolo County.
County Health Officer Dr. Aimee Sisson said, “The closing of the test-to-treat mobile bus on Feb. 5 does not mean the end of free testing or treatment resources in Yolo County.
“Free antigen tests are still widely available in county-run vending machines and at libraries, and free telehealth services are available through Sesame Care online or by phone to access free COVID treatments,” she said.
Yolo County’s Health and Human Services Agency will continue to provide free COVID-19 antigen tests at numerous locations across Yolo County. In Winters, Antigen tests are available in an outdoor vending machine outside of Winters City Hall, 318 First St.
