Free COVID-19 Testing
The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with Curative Inc. 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.
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. Register for a test at a location near you using the interactive map or directory below.
L.A. County Department of Public Health teams, along with hundreds of L.A. City workers, are working as contact tracers to help identify people who have come in contact with COVID-19 and limit the spread of this virus. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or been in contact with someone who has, you will receive a call from "L.A. Public Health." Please answer the call. Contact tracers can also help connect you to resources and your information is kept totally confidential. Learn more about how contact tracing works. If you haven't received a call, you can reach them 1-833-540-0473 seven days a week from 8 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
The SafePass app puts contact tracing in the hands of every Angeleno, alerting people who may have been exposed to COVID-19. The free app keeps user information confidential and allows them to track symptoms, find testing sites, get alerts if they have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, and help slow the spread of the virus.
