Information about COVID-19 Testing

The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with the County of Los Angeles and CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort), is providing free COVID-19 testing to ALL Los Angeles County residents, whether or not you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Individuals are encouraged to first contact their primary care provider or healthcare center about receiving a test at their facility.

Priority for testing is still given to people with symptoms, such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath; people over 65 or who have certain chronic medical conditions; and certain groups of essential workers.

Testing is by appointment only.
