Test-to-Treat locations in Mendocino County now offer flu tests in addition to
COVID tests. Those that test positive for COVID may also be eligible for immediate treatment by an on-site doctor.

“The addition of flu testing at our Test-to-Treat sites is very positive news for the county,”
explained Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren. “We have seen very high rates of flu and other
respiratory viruses this fall compared to the last 2 years. Having easy access to testing and
treatments for flu or COVID will really help decrease the stress in our emergency rooms and medical offices.”

People are encouraged to access Test-to-Treat sites if they have flu or COVID symptoms. At the site you can:

  • Get tested, if positive
  • Be seen by a health-care provider
  • Receive medication (COVID only)

Treatments are recommended for most adults and some teenagers who get flu or COVID.

The two Test-to-Treat sites in Mendocino County are located in Ukiah and Fort Bragg:

Ukiah Fairgrounds – 1055 N State St., Ukiah
9 AM – 5 PM – Sunday through Thursday (closed from 1 – 2 PM)

  1. Who will be held responsible for the increase in myocarditis? German pathologists have discovered lymphocytes damaging heart tissues, and the presence of amyloid white proteins in veins and arteries that are prevalent since the mRNA injections were introduced deserves thorough scientific investigation.
