The COVID-19 testing registration opened on May 3rd and testing will begin at the South Lake Tahoe site on May 5. Please notify your staff and employees of this opportunity, especially those in the utility, restaurant, grocery, food supply, and public works industries.
Testing will be paid for by your personal medical insurance provider unless you do not have insurance coverage. For those who do not have medical coverage, the State will cover the cost of the test. Please have your identification card available at the site for registration purposes. It does not matter if the individual is documented or undocumented to get the test. If they do not have an identification card, the staff will generate a unique identifier number to get results.
El Dorado County officials are working hard to ensure that all residents of our community, from both California and Nevada, will be qualified to be tested at this site. If you are for any reason turned away due to your Nevada residency, please send us an email.
Test results are expected to take 48-72 hours. All test results will be entered into the California Reportable Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE) site. Patients will receive a card at the time of testing to go to LHI.CARE for test results and they will be contacted by telephone if the patient's test comes back positive. The nurse will contact positive test result patients.
