Modified Holiday Schedule | COVID-19 Testing
In observance of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, drive-up and walk-up COVID-19 testing sites across LA County will be operating on a modified schedule from December 24th – January 1, 2021. Click here for more information.
We encourage you to consult with your doctor if you think you need a test. During the holiday season, 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.
