TESTING IN MALIBU
The City of Malibu partnered with Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE) and Malibu Medical Group to conduct drive-thru COVID-19 tests at Malibu City Hall at numerous times since the start of the pandemic.
Priority was initially given to first responders, front-line medical workers, and employees at essential businesses, as well as those at highest risk, including seniors, individuals with underlying health conditions, those who care for individuals at high risk, and any residents exhibiting symptoms, before opening the testing to the greater Malibu community.
The City of Malibu is extremely grateful to the many dedicated staff and volunteers who helped make the drive-thru testing at City Hall possible.
