City of Orange opens pop-up COVID-19 testing site to meet demand

A drive-thru pop-up COVID-19 testing site opened in the city of Orange to meet the demand of people looking to get tested.
"We're seeing about 600 to 700 patients a day," says Castor Castillo, of Salerno Medical Associates. "We're noticing that the community is answering so we're trying to open up as much as we can for them."
Officials say the city has just over 4,900 cases with 81 new cases reported Tuesday despite having almost 80% of residents vaccinated. There has also been one death since the recent surge.

Salerno Medical Associates says at least 30% of the people tested have a positive result.
"That's pretty high especially from what we're used to," says Castillo. "Just a couple of months back, everything was a little down."
City of Orange Mayor Dwayne Warren says his law department is reviewing an executive order to require people to wear masks in public places.
This all comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put out new quarantine guidelines that shorten the isolation period.
Warren says City Hall is closed until Jan. 10 with only essential personnel returning. Schools will use a hybrid model.
