Farmworkers can receive free COVID-19 testing this week


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Local officials are working to make COVID-19 testing available to one of the county’s most underserved populations — farmworkers.

Supervisor David Couch teamed up with the California Farmworker Foundation and Good Samaritan Hospital to bring a mobile testing clinic to certain areas across Kern County.

On Tuesday, it will offer free testing in Delano at 9 a.m., then the clinic moves to Lamont on Wednesday and McFarland on Thursday.

Each week, officials will decide on a new schedule for testing.
