Coronavirus Testing Gift Card Program to End

The Kern County Department of Health says they have almost exhausted their gift card supply

On November 17, the Kern County Board of Supervisors approved the purchase of 12,000 $25 VISA gift cards. These gift cards have been given to any person who gets a COVID-19 test at one of the below testing sites since November 30 launch:

Public Health Nursing Mobile Testing Site

Good Samaritan Hospital – 901 Olive Drive, Bakersfield 93308

Adventist Health in Lamont – Kern County Library 8304 Segrue Road, Lamont 93241

The goal was to improve the health of residents living within our lowest quartile census tracks, and increase their testing to ensure that individuals can take the right actions to protect themselves, their families and the community. We thank our community for answering the call to get tested for COVID-19 and we encourage residents to continue to get tested to help slow the spread of this disease in our community.

As only a few gift cards remain, the following test sites will be the only sites distributing, while supplies last:
