COVID-19 Pop-Up Testing Site to Open in Larkspur June 4-5
Testing our workforce is a priority and thanks to a new partnership with Carbon Health, Marin Public Health is able to provide pop-up test sites where current test opportunities do not exist.
Carbon Health open a pop-up testing location June 4-5 at Piper Park in the Larkspur area. For testing, specimen samples are taken from the patient’s nose or throat, with results in 3-5 days. Patients should expect a light clinical evaluation after checking in and before their test. Testing is confidential. Online appointments are available now.
Marin County Public Health and its partners are aggressively adding testing options because even people without symptoms can have COVID-19 and infect others. Carbon Health’s mobile COVID-19 testing clinic will be visiting various locations around the Bay Area, with stops in Novato and Sausalito later in June.

Health Officers Pledge Ongoing Partnership During COVID-19
Today, the public health officers of Marin, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, and Santa Clara counties and the City of Berkeley issued a statement of commitment to continue to work in close collaboration on how to best protect the residents of the collective region.
“We are encouraged by what we are seeing in some areas and concerned about what we are seeing in others,” the statement said. “As we move forward together, we will each make choices about what to reopen and how quickly to do so. Those decisions will be based on the data related to the specific conditions in our communities, as well as our joint assessment of broader regional trends.” [Read the entire statement online]
