Santa Barbara County Suggests Alternative COVID Testing Sites

July 07, 2020

Positive COVID-19 cases in Santa Barbara County have been increasing in recent weeks, particularly in the Santa Maria area. Because of growing demand for testing, the Santa Maria testing sites are extremely busy, and turn-around for results has been slower than other in other sites. To address the increasing needs for testing, the County is reminding the community of sites and options available for testing.

Currently, Santa Barbara County is advising that the state testing facilities in Buellton and the Grover Beach site in San Luis Obispo County do not have the scheduling or wait time issues that the Santa Maria site has been experiencing. The Public Health clinic in Santa Maria is another testing location option. If individuals have a personal physician, it is recommended that they contact their physician to schedule their test.

Testing centers should be aware of the state government guidelines that prioritize testing for essential workers who are potentially exposed or symptomatic.

CSC continues to work with County and elected officials, along with industry partners, to identify and address concerns, and to communicate updates to industry and the community.
