Support Local Journalism


Free coronavirus testing will be offered throughout Yolo County in August, including on four separate dates in Davis.

The Davis Senior Center will host COVID-19 testing every Thursday afternoon during August. Four hundred tests will be available each day, according to Jenny Tan, the county’s public information officer.

Additional testing days will be held in West Sacramento, Winters, Madison, Knights Landing, Dunnigan, Clarksburg and Esparto. Testing will also be taking place all month long at Woodland Community College.

Testing at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St., will take place Aug. 6, 13, 20 and 27 from 3 to 7 p.m.

The testing is offered on a first come, first served basis and will end when all the tests are gone for that day. Participants must be residents of Yolo County and will need to provide proof of residency in the form of a document displaying their name and address, such as a driver’s license, identification card, utility bill or rental agreement.

All ages are accepted.

Registration is recommended in order to speed up the process but is not required and does not guarantee a test. Register online at https://www.avellinocoronatest.com/patient. Registrants will not be able to select a time slot and will not receive confirmation of receipt.

Other testing days and locations open to all county residents are:

* Aug. 5, 4 to 7 p.m., Madison Town Hall, 29041 Main St., Madison

These sites will test if residents currently have COVID-19, not antibodies.

Residents must wear a face covering and practice social distancing and will need to park their cars and walk a short distance to the testing building. Spanish translation will be available at most, if not all, of the sites.

Testing taking place at Woodland Community College is by appointment only and does require advance registration.

Appointments are available Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., through Aug. 22. To register, call 888-634-1123 or visit https://lhi.care/covidtesting

This OptumServe testing is available to anyone in the community. The testing is free to those without insurance and insurance companies will be billed for those who have it. There is no out-of-pocket cost.
