Ventura County residents who are showing COVID-19 symptoms and are interested in being tested were advised to contact their doctors first.
“Your doctor will do a risk assessment by phone and let you know whether or not testing is recommended,” Ventura County spokeswoman Ashley Bautista said. “If your doctor recommends testing they will let you know where to go to get tested. There are many drive by locations available once your doctor orders a test.”
Those who do not have primary doctors were urged to visit www.vcemergency.com/clinics for information on clinics and urgent care centers.
