MODESTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A new COVID-19 mobile testing van for Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties will launch beginning Monday, Jan. 4, Rep. Josh Harder announced Thursday.

“We heard from communities across the Valley that we’re low on testing capacity — so we went and found some more,” Harder, D-Turlock, said in a statement. “The first step in combating the virus is understanding where it is.
