“The best way to prevent further spread of COVID-19 following the holidays and New Year’s is to get tested if you gathered indoors with multiple households, even if you don’t have symptoms,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“We have made it as convenient as possible to get tested, with an appointment-based system to minimize wait times and eliminate long lines. I thank our testing providers for partnering with us to increase these options for our residents and business employees as we prepare for the potential of a post-holiday surge in cases.”
