Test-to-Treat service continues to be available at the Wharfinger Building (1 Marina Way, Eureka). At Test-to-Treat locations, people are tested for COVID-19 and if a person tests positive, is 12 or older and treatments are deemed appropriate for them, Paxlovid antiviral medication will be administered at no charge. A registered nurse is onsite with a Telehealth link to a medical doctor in order to dispense medication, should the patient choose.

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

OptumServe offers rapid antigen testing and PCR testing services at the Wharfinger, as well. Walk-in attendees will receive only rapid antigen testing unless the attendee specifically states they require 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 to 5 p.m.

Vaccines remain readily available throughout Humboldt County and, as always, Humboldt’s 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.
