COVID-19 test sites in Monterey County 

At Community Hospital, we test people who have COVID-19 symptoms. We do not provide COVID-19 tests for walk-in community members with no symptoms. 

Free COVID-19 tests are available at testing site locations on the Monterey Peninsula. Visit Monterey County Vaccines for a complete list of COVID-19 testing locations near you.

Monterey County Department of Health offers additional COVID-19 resources and testing locations. Some clinics and pharmacies also offer testing. Call 1 (888) 634-1123 to make an appointment, or register online.
