New COVID-19 testing options available throughout OC
People with or without symptoms of COVID-19 can obtain a free assessment and testing through the OC COVID-19 Testing Network.
The network includes community health centers throughout the County that offer testing and care, even if you don’t have health insurance. If you test positive, your close contacts (folks who’ve been within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) will be tested or referred to another location for testing.

I want to be tested
I would recommend the city of mission viejo to send test kits to every residents, according to the size of their household, to self test (properly vetted before being distributed infection free) with proper instructions on how to properly seal the sample to avoid the examiners from being infected and develop a call center for residents to call for the sample to be picked up in a timely and safely manner. Therefore, eliminating the risk of residents, being tested at a test center, to be infected by the virus. I swear, I think the test centers are causing several spike in infections... and can you really trust those working at the test sites?
