Starting on March 1st, residents don't need an appointment to get a COVID-19 test at sites operated by the city of Los Angeles. If you want to get a COVID test, you can now show up to any testing site between Monday and Saturday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. According to Mayor Garcetti,
“Since we became the first big city in America to offer universal testing, free to everyone with or without symptoms, we’ve tested more times than there are people in the city of Los Angeles, over four million tests across 14 city-run sites, 136 nursing facilities and over 150 mobile sites we’ve set up around the city."
You can register for your test while you're waiting in line and you just have to bring your insurance information or identification if you don’t have insurance. If you do want to sign up for your test in advance, you can sign up for an appointment here.
