Testing for COVID-19

People with COVID-19, even if they have no symptoms, can be very infectious and pass the infection to others.  Here’s what you need to know about how to get a coronavirus test. 

The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with Curative Inc. and Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE), is providing free COVID-19 testing to ALL Los Angeles County residents, whether or not your are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

The test is free, whether or not you have insurance. If you have insurance, the provider may bill your insurance carrier for the cost of the test. By law, the insurance company may not charge you any co-pay, deductible, or any out-of-pocket expense for the test.

Priority for same or next day testing is still given to people experiencing symptoms, and certain critical front-line workers who interact with the public. Testing at the drive-thrus is by appointment only, but walk up testing is available at mobile test locations.

More than 130 facilities across the County now offer free COVID-19 testing. Clink HERE to register for a test at a location near you .
