COVID-19: 10 percent tested positive at Hayward site during first week

Hayward city officials reported Wednesday that the first week of free COVID-19 testing found 130 new cases of the virus.

The site located at the Hayward Fire Station on Huntwood Avenue tested 1,254 people last week. The rate of infection among those tested in 10 percent.

Countywide, there have been 359 confirmed cases of COVID-19, as of Wednesday morning.

The Hayward testing site, funded by the Hayward Fire Department and the city, is open to all, and without a doctor’s referral. However, those who are symptomatic for the virus will only be tested.

The site is open from Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or whenever the number of test kits are exhausted.

  1. I wonder if the City Hayward will be transparent and forthcoming with the positive COVID 19 test results for their own employees. Oakland, San Jose and other cities don’t seem to have a problem making press releases regarding positive test results for their essential employees who provide service to the public. Not a good time for city government to act like big government and sweep things under the rug.
