ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 8, 2020) — Testing is readily available across Anaheim!
With the holiday rush and the peak of the winter case surge behind us, there are plenty of appointments available, often the same day with minimal or no waits.
Cases and other trends are moving in the right direction, but testing remains as important as ever to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Testing helps detect cases early and ensures someone infected isolates and is treated. That helps stop the spread of more cases.
Testing is available at the Anaheim Convention Center, City Hall, Brookhurst Community Center and the East Anaheim Gymnasium.
We expect to see an additional location in the Anaheim Canyon this month, as a resource for those at essential work.
We'll share more details when we have them.
