Nevada County Public Health Department offers free, confidential, rapid HIV testing on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at its Grass Valley office located at 500 Crown Point Circle. In addition to finding out their HIV status, individuals who test negative will receive counseling about strategies to reduce their risk, while those whose test results show a preliminary positive will receive an immediate referral to the County’s HIV Case Manager who will connect them with the resources they need to live with HIV and prevent further transmission of the virus. If you have questions, please call (530) 265-1228.
The NorCal AIDS Cycle is a bicycle ride fundraiser in which cyclists ride hundreds of miles through Northern California to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS service providers in the Sacramento Valley and beyond. This generous award combined with last year’s award of $16,000 has allowed NCPHD to offer free and confidential HIV Testing.
