The County of Sonoma continues to ramp up COVID-19 testing, particularly in the neighborhoods most impacted by the virus. These efforts now include two new weekly sites in Santa Rosa run by the County's Department of Health Services and the addition of two to three weekly events in the City of Sonoma administered with the help of a mobile unit operated by the testing company LHI. The new DHS sites, at Andy's Unity Park and the Roseland Library, will be open from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., enabling residents to receive free, confidential testing, regardless of immigration status. The site at Andy's Unity Park will be open Fridays beginning Jan. 15 and the Roseland Library site is available Mondays starting Jan. 25. These are the first two of six planned new testing sites that the County is opening so that it can offer recurring weekly testing events in targeted neighborhoods.
