Hayward COVID-19 Testing Site Moved to CSU East Bay

On Monday, April 13, 2020, the City of Hayward will relocate its COVID-19 testing site to Cal State East Bay on 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., in parking lot A on the west side of campus.

The testing site will open to the public Tuesday, April 14, 2020, and operate Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The testing site will be closed on Mondays.

The testing site will replace the current testing site at Hayward Fire Station #7 on 28270 Huntwood Ave., which opened on March 23, 2020. The testing site will remain open as long as deemed necessary by the City of Hayward in coordination with Cal State East Bay, Alameda County Office of Emergency Services, and California Office of Emergency Services.

“During these unprecedented times, it is important for individuals and groups to collaborate in the interest of public health and safety,” said Mark Flores, Cal State East Bay police chief. “We are pleased to be part of a partnership with the Hayward Fire Department to collaborate to expand the COVID-19 testing site to the campus. This transition will streamline the process and provide more space to accommodate the needs of the city of Hayward.”

The COVID-19 Testing Site is free and open to anyone regardless of where they live or immigration status. No doctor referral is required. However, testing is available only to people age 12 and above with COVID-19 symptoms and a fever over 100 degrees. Symptoms include cough and shortness of breath.

By order of the Health Officer of Alameda County and Contra Costa County, the Cal State East Bay campuses (Hayward, Concord and Oakland) are adhering to the shelter-in-place order through May 3. Cal State East Bay continues to deliver all classes online, including final exams, through the end of the Spring 2020 term.

Cal State East Bay has a COVID-19 website with information on how the university is responding to the pandemic, including information on course delivery and student service.
