Free Public COVID-19 Testing in Moorpark
The Ventura County Health Care Agency is offering free drive-through testing to all Ventura County residents who have the slightest suspicion of having COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with it. You will not be charged for the test, and you don’t need to have health insurance (you may be asked for insurance information if you have it, though). No appointment is needed. You will be asked for proof of residency or employment in Ventura County.
The test is a self-administered nasal swab, and results will be available by phone within four days. 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
Monday-Friday, 10AM - 7PM
