Some 100 people signed up for COVID-19 testing today and tomorrow at Malibu City Hall.

The testing is a partnership between the city and Malibu Medical Group.

Dr. Lisa Benya told Surfside News’ Suzy Demeter that testing will continue weekly through the month of December and following that based on demand.

Everyone is welcome, even people who live outside of Malibu, with no payment required because a patient’s insurance will cover the test.

But even those without insurance can be tested.

Positive cases will be contact-traced.

“We will get Malibu through the holidays,” Dr. Benya said.

Those working the testing site are donating their time.

Two nasal tests are available, one with a two-day turnaround and the other — for those with symptoms — with results in 15 minutes.
