ANAHEIM, Calif. (Dec. 15, 2020) — Walk-up COVID-19 testing is now available in west and east Anaheim.
On Monday, we started walk-up testing at the East Anaheim Gymnasium, at 8165 E. Santa Ana Canyon Road, just off Weir Canyon Road.
East Anaheim testing takes place on Mondays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Enter off Santa Ana Canyon Road, then veer left to the gymnasium near the Logan Wells Memorial Skatepark.
Testing takes place outside, on the grass in front of the gymnasium building.
On Tuesday, we started walk-up testing at Brookhurst Community Center, where testing will take place Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The center is at 2271 Crescent Ave., off Brookhurst Street. Enter off Crescent and make your way to the southwest, or backside, of the community center.
Testing at Brookhurst is outside in the parking lot alongside Ventura Street.
For both sites, it is best to make an appointment. Walk-ups are accepted, but you'll wait longer.
To make an appointment go to Anaheim.net/testing. You can also find out about testing at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim City Hall, at-home testing and more.
Even with an appointment, there is wait time at testing sites. That's because there is a lot of demand for testing now, and you'll encounter waits wherever you go.
For everything you wanted to know about testing, here is a video link with how to make an appointment, how to do the test and how to minimize wait time.
