Free COVID-19 Testing Available to Millbrae Residents
Over the past four months, many organizations across the nation have stepped up to help support COVID-19 response efforts. In partnership with the State of California and San Mateo County Health, Verily’s Project Baseline will now offer free COVID-19 testing to San Mateo County residents.
Starting on Monday, May 18th, Verily will operate two COVID-19 testing sites in San Mateo County:
San Mateo County Event Center (1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo) on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Former Serramonte High School Campus (699 Serramonte Boulevard, Daly City) on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Testing is free and available without restriction to anyone, though an appointment is required in advance. To schedule an appointment, please visit www.projectbaseline.com and click on the COVID-19 button at the top of the page. After being tested, residents will receive results and other information by email. San Mateo County Health will reach out to residents who test positive.
The expanding of testing sites is part of San Mateo County’s strategy to bring more resources to more locations. The new sites, in the northern and southern parts of the county, will make it easier for residents to access free testing. To meet State guidelines, San Mateo County needs to administer about 1,200 tests per day through hospitals, private testing companies, and the free program available through Verily.
The County can help residents who lack transportation to a test site. After being screened on Verily’s Project Baseline website and receiving an appointment time, individuals with no other means to reach the testing site can call (650) 779-9375, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., to arrange free transportation.
Again, to schedule an appointment for a free COVID-19 test, please visit www.projectbaseline.com and click on the COVID-19 button at the top of the page.
