TCHC offering COVID-19 tests

Tri-City Health Center continues to be at the forefront in helping address COVID-19 in southern Alameda County. Recently, we’ve received test kits and have effectively implemented these through a daily drive-thru clinic outside of our Liberty location. COVID-19 testing is by appointment ONLY. In order to be tested at Tri-City Health Center, please call our appointment line at 510.770.8040. Our staff will schedule you an appointment or direct you where to receive a test.

In addition to testing, we announced our telemedicine initiative last week. We are currently moving all appointments to over the phone. Our clinics will remain open for patients for urgent visits only.

Earlier this week, Alameda County announced an extension to its “shelter in place” order. Please continue to follow social distancing protocols so we can flatten the curve. Our providers and staff are risking their health every day to serve the community, please follow the community order and #StayHome, Save Lives.

The new order, which lasts until May 3rd, allows for essential businesses, such as Tri-City Health Center, to remain open. However, it prohibits the use of playgrounds, dog parks, public picnic area, basketball courts, and pools. It asks for essential businesses to implement social distancing protocols. At Tri-City Health Center, high touch areas are wiped down frequently and all patients, and staff and visitors must keep six feet of distance between each other.

This is a challenging time for everyone. But with your help, we can get through this. Wash your hands and stay healthy!
