National Guard Hosting Another Pop-Up COVID-19 Testing Site In Galt

GALT (CBS13) — The California National Guard is planning to operate a pop-up coronavirus testing event in Galt this week.

The testing site will be open starting at 8 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday at Walker Community Park on Orr Road. Appointments are not necessary, and the county said community members 18 and older will be tested on a first-come-first-served basis. There is a 100-test limit each day.

Officials say results can take five to seven business days.

A similar pop-up site was held last week in Galt and spots filled up quickly. Within an hour of opening, the gates were closed.
