Riverside County health officials are adding two walk-in testing sites – one in Cathedral City and the other in Moreno Valley — for those interested in being screened for coronavirus. But you must have an appointment to get tested.

Testing at the Cathedral City Public Library and Crossword Christian Church in Moreno Valley and is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.  The library is located at 33520 Date Palm Drive in Cathedral City. The church is located at 21401 Box Springs Road in Moreno Valley.

These are the first walk-in sites operated by the county; the four others are drive-up sites located in Indio, Lake Elsinore, Perris, and Riverside.

Testing at the new sites is open to anyone, whether they have symptoms or not, and there are no out-of-pocket costs to individuals. Participants will be asked to provide information about their health insurance, but they will not be charged any share of costs or copay and will be allowed to get tested even if they do not provide the insurance information. But you must have an appointment to get tested.

To make an appointment at county-operated sites, call 800-945-6171.
