The Test-to-Treat service continues to be available at the Wharfinger Building (1 Marina Way, Eureka). At Test-to-Treat sites, people are tested for COVID-19 and if a person tests positive, is 12 or older, and treatments are deemed appropriate for them, the antiviral drug Paxlovid will be administered free of charge. A registered nurse is on site with a telehealth link to a doctor to dispense medication, if the patient wishes.

The service operates daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is closed from 11 a.m. to noon and from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Participants should bring a list of their medications and be prepared to answer basic questions about their medical history.

OptumServe also offers rapid antigen testing and PCR testing services at Wharfinger. Walk-in participants will only receive rapid antigen tests, unless the participant specifically indicates that they need a PCR test. Appointments for antigen testing can be made at lhi.care/covidtesting or by calling 888-634-1123. Wharfinger testing runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is closed from 11 a.m. to noon and 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Vaccines remain readily available throughout Humboldt County, and as always, Humboldt vaccination and testing services are available free of charge. Walk-ins are welcome at all public health clinics and some pharmacy vaccination sites. Appointments can also be made at MyTurn.ca.gov.
