REDDING, Calif. – New testing resources are available for people searching to get tested for COVID-19 - especially before the holidays.

Lab 24 offers PCR testing, and there are about 13,000 testing kits there.

Once someone gets swabbed, that sample is tested and analyzed there. Lab 24 says it takes about 48 hours to get results back.

Owner John Serle told Action News Now, with Christmas just four days away - it's important for people to get tested.

"When it comes down to who needs to be tested, we need the mechanics to be tested, we need the doctors to be tested, we need the nurses, those folks need a piece of mind so that they can go home every night to their families and keep the community running, just like the local restaurants," explained Serle.

Lab 24 is doing about 200 COVID-19 tests a day. The company said it can perform upwards of 1,000 tests.

It is free to get tested and no appointment is needed. People who want to get tested can head to Lab 24, Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The lab also does tests for other counties like Trinity, Modoc, and Lassen.
