The National Guard sends reinforcements to Covid testing centers in Chula Vista, San Diego


Faced with the growing demand for Covid tests, at least 200 members of the California National Guard joined this Saturday as interim medical assistants to test centers in Chula Vista, National City, San Diego and other cities in the county.

The state troopers were dispatched to 50 Optum Serve testing centers across the state, six of them in San Diego County, which are facing the highest demand.

Governor Gavin Newsom’s office reported that more military will be deployed next week to support those centers.
