Thanksgiving Holiday | COVID-19 Testing Availability
In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, City, County, and State-supported COVID-19 testing sites across LA County will be closed on Thursday, November 26th. Select testing sites will resume operations on Friday, November 27th. Click here for more information.
We encourage you to consult with your doctor before the Thanksgiving holiday if you think you need a test. During the Thanksgiving holiday, it is important that you continue to monitor your health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, wear your face covering, practice physical distancing, avoid gatherings, and wash your hands frequently.
Testing is currently recommended if you:
- Have symptoms of COVID-19.
- Were asked by LA County Department of Public Health to get a test because of a contact tracing or outbreak investigation.
- Were in “close contact” with someone who has COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks.
- Work or live in places such as skilled nursing facilities, group homes, residential care facilities, correctional facilities or homeless shelters.
- Are a person experiencing homelessness.
- Are an essential worker with frequent contacts with the public in the following areas: health care, emergency, food and grocery services, factory workers in food and retail, public transportation, and education.
- Don't have symptoms but believe you may be infected now because you were exposed to people who were sick, were around many people who were not wearing face coverings, and/or were not keeping safe distance in the past 2 weeks.
