LA Announces Drive-Thru Testing Sites
Article posted: April 4, 2020, 12:00 p.m., Updated April 7, 2020, 12:00 p.m.

UPDATE: Free tests are now available for anyone with symptoms. Previously, the tests were reserved for people with symptoms who were either elderly, or who had underlying chronic health conditions, as well as anyone prevented from working due to a mandatory 14 day quarantine period due to coronavirus exposure.

Learn how to schedule an appointment at a drive-up mobile testing site in LA County. (A message from the LA County Department of Public Health.)

If you are experiencing severe symptoms such as severe shortness of breath, contact your physician. If it is an emergency, dial 911.

Individuals eligible for testing at this time include LA County residents who:

- Have flu-like symptoms, and/or, 
- Who are subject to a mandatory 14 day quarantine period due to a confirmed COVID-19 exposure (with more than 7 days of quarantine remaining)

Please Note: same or next day testing appointments are prioritized for individuals over 65, or who have underlying chronic health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, asthma, chronic lung disease, hypertension, and compromised immune systems.

Tests are also prioritized for first responders, critical government workers, and health care professionals. Those individuals should inquire at their affiliated hospital, medical center, or department for information about how to schedule a same or next day appointment for testing.

The tests provided through the program are mouth swab tests. Test results may take up to five days to come back. Prepare for an appointment by watching this video: click here.

For people who prefer not to visit a drive-through test center, there are a limited number of tests available at a walk-in clinic. Select the Carbon Health-Echo Park location.
