Free, Same-Day Tests Now Available 

As of this morning, free, same-day tests are available for all LA County residents who have symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. If you or a loved is experiencing symptoms, please know the following factors do not affect eligibility for a COVID-19 test:

  • Immigration status
  • Insurance status
  • Age
  • Underlying health issues

To ensure sites can prioritize people who need it most, ONLY people who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms AND have made an appointment, are eligible for testing at this time. We continue to build our network of testing sites across LA County, and as more sites become operational, we will let you know.
