Riverside County residents now have the option to make appointments online to be screened for coronavirus at county-operated testing sites.
According to the county Executive Office, appointments are available by going to www.rivcoph.org/coronavirus/testing. Once there, visitors can select a site, as well as a day and time.
Making appointments in advance previously required phone calls for the most part, and appointments can still be made via phone at 800-945-6171. The best time to call is between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m., according to county officials.
There are 14 testing locations available.
According to the Riverside University Health System, almost a quarter million residents have been screened for COVID-19 thus far.
