SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — According to the latest numbers, 810 people in San Bernardino County have tested positive for COVID-19 and 25 deaths are attributed to the virus.

County health officials said they are actively pursuing testing resources for COVID-19 both domestically and internationally in order to increase capacity for community testing.

“We understand the high demand for COVID-19 testing in our county and we are making every effort to organize drive-through events throughout the county,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “We are working closely with state and federal partners and exploring all avenues to increase testing capacity, despite a nationwide challenge with shortage of supplies.”

The process has required research and evaluation that has resulted in several pending orders for thousands of serology (antibody) and extraction test kits for use throughout the county, officials said.

The County continues to receive testing supplies from commercial laboratories to support drive-thru test sites. 

New test kit products are evaluated on a daily basis and the County is confident that even more testing solutions will be available in the near future.

San Bernardino County residents who display symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, cough and shortness of breath can get tested at five upcoming specimen-collection events through the end of April.

San Bernardino County residents who have had COVID-19 symptoms over the last two weeks can make an appointment on the COVID-19 website sbcovid19.com when the appointment window for each event opens.
