“We must continue to do our part to ensure that we are on a path to recovery. As we wait for new treatments and a vaccine, there are actions people can do now that we know work,” said Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras County Health Officer. “Recovery is something we all want to see happen as quickly as possible. We can achieve this when local businesses and our community work together to keep each other safe and healthy. This means wearing a face covering, getting tested, washing your hands often, staying home if you are sick, and practicing physical distancing,” said Dr. Kelaita.
No-cost testing for COVID-19 is available to anyone who would like to get tested. The OptumServe COVID-19 testing site located at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds is open Tuesday-Saturday from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. Testing is now available to those age 3 and older.
