LA County Health Services launched a new program to increase and facilitate access to COVID-19 tests for LA County residents unable to obtain appointments.
The Pick-Up Testing Kit program allows residents to pick up a PCR test kit, perform the test and return the completed test to designated sites for processing. Residents will be notified of their test results within 24-48 hours via email.
Additionally, avoid fake testing sites, which may ask for personal identifiable information with the intention of committing fraud.
“Throughout California, fake testing sites are sprouting up to exploit families and individuals seeking COVID tests,” said Attorney General Bonta. “I urge Californians to do their part to avoid fake testing sites by utilizing state resources, including the California Department of Public Health’s website, to find a verified COVID-19 testing site.”
