Inyo County Public Health is opening two new community-based drive through testing sites (CBTS) to expand COVID-19 testing for Inyo County residents, supported by the California Department of Public Health and in collaboration with Verily's Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program.
- Bishop: Tri-County Fairgrounds - Tallman Pavillion, 1234 Sierra Street, beginning Wednesday, December 2nd, 8 AM - 12:45 PM. Testing will continue to be available every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday - participants must register and schedule an appointment in order to get tested.

Residents can screen their symptoms and make an appointment online for testing using the Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program online screener and appointment scheduling system found at www.projectbaseline.com/COVID19 .The screening and testing criteria are based on public health guidelines and may be updated to reflect the latest guidance from public health authorities.
Inyo County’s community-based COVID-19 testing program is directed by Inyo County Public Health with operational support from Northern Inyo Healthcare District. In collaboration, the Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program provides a connected solution to support individuals from screening through testing and receipt of their test results. Verily developed The Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program, working closely with state and local government health authorities and other private health organizations, to expand access to COVID-19 screening and testing initially in areas with a high volume of known cases and has continued to increase access to testing across California and nationally. The Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program has supported the administration of over 220,000 COVID-19 tests to date.
Eligible persons must be 18 years or older, live or work in Inyo County, and be willing to electronically sign the COVID-19 Public Health Authorization Form and Lab Consent. Based on the COVID-19 screener and testing appointment availability, individuals will learn whether they are eligible for testing through this program and be provided a testing location appointment (participants must be in a vehicle in order to get tested).
