COVID-19: Testing Information

Free Public COVID-19 Testing in Moorpark

COVID-19 Testing at Moorpark CollegeThe Ventura County Health Care Agency offers free drive-through testing at Moorpark College and across Ventura County for anyone who lives in Ventura County. You will not be charged for the test, and you don’t need to have health insurance. You do need to pre-register at www.vccovid.com.

The PCR test is a self-administered nasal swab, and results are sent via E-mail or text message.  The test determines if you currently have COVID-19; it is not an antibody test that determines if you have previously had COVID-19.

The Moorpark testing site is at:

Moorpark College, 7075 Campus Road

Northeast corner of campus, in the Charles Temple Observatory parking lot (approach from the west, from Collins Drive)
Every Day, 10AM - 7PM, weather permitting
(check www.venturacountyrecovers.org for daily updates to hours and current wait times)

You must pre-register at www.vccovid.com before arriving to take your test. Same-day appointments are usually available.

If you have questions about your results, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions.  If you have not received your results after five days, please contact the lab.

What if I Test Positive?

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and have questions:

  • Individuals who have tested positive for COVID19 and provided a cell number to the testing site at the time they took the COVID19 test, will receive a text message from Ventura County Public Health (VCPH) with a survey link for case investigation/contact tracing purposes. The message is in English and Spanish. Please respond to the text message by completing the text survey.
  • In the text survey, you will find information on isolation/quarantine, links to more information and resources and VCPH Communicable Disease (CD) unit’s main phone line.
  • If you complete the survey and indicate that you are unable to self-isolate, your case is noted and you will be assigned to a case investigator. The case investigator will contact you for follow up and assistance.
  • If you do not provide a cell phone number to the testing site, you will be assigned to a case investigator for follow up.
