A chart covering the recent testing positivity rates and hospitalizations for Ventura County, updated Monday, Jan. 3. 

 

Amid the recent spike in COVID-19 cases throughout the county, Ventura County Public Health will be providing free at-home COVID-19 testing kits while supplies last on Jan. 4. 

Kits will be distributed at Freedom Park, 275 E. Pleasant Valley Road, Camarillo 93010. (Enter at Freedom Park Dr. past the baseball fields.)

Distribution will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. while supplies last. 

Tests are only available for Ventura County residents and those requesting tests will be asked to show photo ID. 

Priority for these rapid tests will be given to Ventura County residents who:

1. Were exposed recently to someone that has been confirmed COVID-19 positive 

2. That have had symptoms for 2-3 days. 

This is a separate effort from the upcoming school district distribution of similar tests for students. Families with students are encouraged to utilize the tests provided by schools for their students. 

The rapid antigen home-test kit drive-through distribution will include 1 box (2 tests per adult) or 2 boxes (4 tests per vehicle). 

At-home test kits provide results within 15 minutes. 

Additional allotments of testing kits are expected from the state, and more information will be shared as they become available to the county. 

Current efforts are also underway to expand PCR testing throughout the county, including setting up new, larger sites and expanding the days, hours and lanes at several of the 14 State testing locations.
