As of April 3, there are several new COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites now open in LA County.
One of these is at the parking lot of the South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach. LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn’s office worked with the LA County Fire Department, the Redondo Beach Fire Department and Police Department, and the Beach Cities Health District to get this facility up and running as quickly as possible.
At this time, tests are limited to LA County’s most vulnerable residents.
You can be tested if you meet at least one of the following criteria:
– You have symptoms and are 65 and older
– You have symptoms and have chronic health conditions
– Testing is also prioritized for certain critical front-line workers who interact with the public while working (even with no symptoms)
Priority for the same or next day testing is still given to people with symptoms, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headaches, sore throat, or a new loss of sense of smell.
You are subject to a mandatory 14 day quarantine period due to a confirmed COVID-19 exposure (with more than 7 days of quarantine remaining)
If you do not have an appointment, they will not be able to test you.
