The county is enhancing its COVID-19 testing capabilities in southeastern San Diego. With the closure of the Tabman Chavez Community Center, several local churches have been strengthened to provide a location for COVID-19 testing in the area.
This shift will continue to give the community access to free testing. This move will increase test availability from 5 to 7 days between locations.
Starting Sunday, September 26th, unreserved COVID-19 testing will be available at the following sites:

The Tabman Chavez Community Center closed on Thursday, ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Southeast Livewell Center next week. The new project will replace and expand the public event space previously available at the Tabman Chavez Community Center.
