Walk-in testing services provided by Virus Geeks are available at the Peet’s Coffee shop at Portola Hotel, 220 Alvarado Street in Downtown Old Monterey. COVID-19 PCR testing at this location is free. (Please note: Peet's Coffee at Portola Hotel is temporarily closed for business. It is currently used only as a testing site.)
The opening of this new testing location in Downtown Old Monterey aligns with Portola Hotel’s continued efforts to create a safe working environment. All non-vaccinated Portola Hotel employees will be tested twice a week, and testing services will be available for all staff, guests, and community members.
"The successful fight against this pandemic includes the support and action of every community member and visitor to our destination. Opening up a testing center in Portola's central location will benefit visitors and locals alike," said Janine Chicourrat, Managing Director at the Portola Hotel & Spa.
