New Elk Grove COVID 19 Testing Site

Location: 9362 Studio Court, Elk Grove, CA 95758
Days: Tuesday through Saturday
Times: 7am – 7pm


To make an appointment, patients will need to complete an online registration process, which will require them to answer a handful of screening questions and create a username and password (about a 10-15 minute process).

People will need to make appointments in advance and if they show up without one, I believe they’ll be instructed to make one on their phone.  There are no age restrictions as long as the test can be safely performed.  More details and other information on the testing process are available in these FAQs.

EGUSD announces Full Distance Learning for Fall 2020


ELK GROVE, Calif. – July 15, 2020 – The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD), after working closely with the Sacramento County Office of Education, area school district Superintendents, Sacramento County Health Director, Dr. Peter Beilenson, Public Health Officer, Dr. Olivia Kasirye, received data from Drs. Beilenson and Kasirye on increases in community spread of the coronavirus combined with the inability of the current testing system to support sufficient timely returns of test results if schools were to reopen. In light of these circumstances, District Superintendents in the 13 districts and the County Superintendent, with the support of Drs. Beilenson and Kasirye, have made the determination that schools should open in August/September with a Distance Learning model.


“Based on our collaboration with and updated information from public health officials, and with ongoing support and feedback from our Board of Education and labor partners, we will start our school year in August with our improved Full Distance Learning model,” affirmed Christopher R. Hoffman, Superintendent of Schools. 


He further stated, “Thanks to our community and their valued feedback, we have developed a flexible plan that enables us to respond and adapt effectively to changing health conditions. Based on recent challenges in testing, the inability to receive timely results and the significant rise in confirmed cases, current health conditions warrant a shift back to our Full Distance Learning model. The goal for the entire Elk Grove Unified community is a safe and full return to school when health conditions allow.”


District officials, school administrators and staff will continue to reach out to parents understanding the importance of the safety for our students and staff and the significant impact this will have on the entire community, students, families and staff. The District along with each school will provide parents with more Back-to-School details. Parents are asked to check their emails regularly and their school and District websites for updates, past information and for additional services and resources.
