Press Release

Today, Congressman McCarthy released the following Public Service Announcement (PSA) regarding surge testing at the Kern County Fairgrounds in Bakersfield, California. The media is invited to use this PSA during their broadcasting.

Hi, I’m Congressman Kevin McCarthy, and I want to talk to you about surge testing in Bakersfield. Surge testing provides additional temporary federal support to areas that have seen a recent spike in coronavirus cases.

"Now, we have a site open in our own community at the Kern County Fairgrounds. Free testing for all helps us get an accurate picture of the current spread of the virus. This surge testing is important – it gives us the opportunity to have a greater capacity to ensure that our family, friends, and neighbors are healthy and strong. I encourage you to get a test.
