The drive-thru Coronavirus testing currently available at the Rose Bowl Stadium is closing Friday at 5 p.m. and the services it provided are transitioning to local clinics, the city announced.

Since opening in early April 9,000 people have been tested at the site which was made possible by resources from the city and Huntington Hospital.

Pasadena residents who tested positive for COVID-19 were subsequently contacted by members of the Pasadena Public Health Department to advise on self-isolation protocol and perform contact tracing to help identify additional positive cases.
