Mt. San Jacinto College’s Menifee satellite campus will be hosting a two-day COVID-19 screening clinic, offering free tests to Riverside County residents during the week of Thanksgiving, it was announced Thursday, Nov. 12.

Campus officials will be coordinating with Riverside University Health System staff to provide the tests from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 22 and 23 at the 3000 Building, 28237 La Piedra Road, just west of Bell Mountain Middle School, according to college spokeswoman Karin Marriott.

“Testing is available for those with and without COVID-19 symptoms,” Marriott said. “Those under age 18 must have written permission from a parent or legal guardian.”

She said walk-in screenings will be welcome, but appointments can also be made in advance. Those interested were encouraged to call 951-732-7970, or 800-945-6171.
