COVID Orange County update: New COVID-19 testing site opens for 30-day period in Irvine
"We get so many calls that our residents don't know where to go get tested," Irvine Mayor Christina Shea said. "It's been very confusing, so we thought if we open up our great park and allow for drive-thru testing, this would give our residents an opportunity to drive through."

OC Veterans Cemetery Declaration
Here is a public declaration of our Orange County Veterans who support the Veterans Cemetery in the Great Park at the cost effective Golf Course site.
Contrary to Harvey Liss' false public statements, there is not full funding for the ARDA site, it hasn't been approved by the Federal Govt, and in fact it is 40 million dollars more than the Golf Course site proposal.
Please don't be fooled and don't sign their Build the Veterans Cemetery Now petition. It's a bad option.
