Free COVID-19 Testing

We strongly encourage all LA County Residents who are interested in being tested to first contact their Primary Care Provider or Healthcare Center about receiving a test at their facility. If you do not have access to this care or are unable to contact them, free testing is available across the County of Los Angeles. Priority is given for those who meet criteria below in accordance with new State guidelines:

  • Symptomatic persons with the following symptoms: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell

At all testing sites, testing is by appointment ONLY.
