Alameda’s COVID-19 testing site has been plagued with temporary shutdowns and confusion since it began operating Wednesday, July 22.

After reports of confusion and setbacks, the COVID-19 testing site in Alameda conducted by CityHealth Urgent Care has been permanently shut down.

The free testing site, located at 300 Wind River Way at The Research Park inside Marina Village, was closed on July 31, according to Alameda City Manager Eric Levitt. Levitt said he is unsure why the site closed, but said the City withdrew support for the project.

“That support was withdrawn when certain protocol concerns from Alameda County were brought to our attention,” wrote Levitt in an email.
