California State University, Bakersfield is offering free COVID-19 testing for anyone in the community on October 28 and 29.
The testing is available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days in Parking Lot I, just south of the Icardo Center.
Anyone interested in taking advantage of this offer is encouraged to pre-register here, but the site will also accept walk-ups.
The nasal swab tests will be self-administered.
Testing keeps our community safe by limiting the spread of the virus and by alerting those who test positive that they need care. It also helps Kern County continue to progress through California's tier system as we move to reopen our community in a responsible, safe manner.
