Amid a winter surge in COVID-19 cases, Santa Cruz County is significantly expanding free community testing.
The testing site at Ramsay Park in Watsonville will now be expanded to provide appointment-based testing seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and can test up to 330 residents a day.
A new testing center also opened at Twin Lakes Church on 2701 Cabrillo College Drive in Aptos, which is open from Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Both sites are free to the public and do not require individuals to exhibit symptoms to get tested.
