Nevada County Testing Site Updates

Drive-through COVID-19 testing is now available for everyone at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building! With our new drive-through capabilities, getting tested is now even safer and more convenient. The testing site at the Grass Valley Veteran’s Hall is open Tuesday through Saturday from 7 AM to 7 PM. Days of operations are subject to change. Please see the OptumServe site for up to date site hours.

As of June 8th, the free COVID-19 OptumServe testing site has moved from Kings Beach to Truckee and is now located at 10990 Donner Pass Road.  We are hopeful that this new site location will increase accessibility for more residents in the region and will increase our testing numbers. The Truckee testing site is open Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 7 PM. Days of operations are subject to change. Please see the OptumServe site for up to date site hours.

Increased testing is crucial to give us a better understanding of the true prevalence of COVID-19 in our community, and to help us mitigate the spread of the virus especially in asymptomatic individuals who may not know they are sick. Testing is key to our ability to respond quickly and contain new outbreaks. If we don’t utilize the testing sites, it is possible that the State will move this important resource to another community, which will not only increase our risk of COVID-19 spread, but will also set back efforts to safely re-open businesses.

ANYONE can get tested, regardless of symptoms, profession, or insurance. While your insurance may be billed if you have it, there are no out of pocket costs. Do your part and make your appointment to get tested today at lhi.care/covidtesting or call 888-634-1123, and help spread the word with your customers, families, and friends.

For additional coronavirus information or for a link to OptumServe’s testing site, you can visit the County’s coronavirus website at www.mynevadacounty.com/coronavirus. You can also watch this video outlining the testing process.
