A new mobile coronavirus testing site made its first stop Wednesday morning in San Francisco and immediately began testing people and providing results.
The testing site — launched by Carbon Health — is at the Stonestown Galleria shopping mall. Results could be ready in as little as 15 minutes, and Carbon Health is making them available to clients on its mobile app the same day as testing.
The vehicle Carbon Health is using for the mobile testing center was provided by San Francisco’s Studio Dental. It is slated to open in different locations across the Bay Area through the end of the month. Tests are by appointment only and are scheduled on the Carbon Health website.
The mobile testing center is scheduled for stops in Redwood City, Femont, Napa, Novato, Pleasanton and Vallejo.
Carbon Health plans on opening a walk-in clinic at Stonestown Galleria later this year.
The mobile testing center moves to Redwood City on Saturday and will be testing by appointment Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Redwood City Plaza.
