[SCV Sheriff] – Los Angeles County will activate a new drive-through, appointment-only COVID-19 testing site at College of the Canyons on Wednesday morning, April 8.

This is one of many testing sites now activated throughout the County of Los Angeles.

The testing site will be limited to first-responders and those that meet the criteria for testing.

Once it has been determined that someone meets the criteria, they will be given an appointment. This site will only take those who have been assigned an appointment.

To find out if you’re eligible for a test and to schedule an appointment at a drive-up mobile testing site in Los Angeles County, please see https://lacovidprod.service-now.com/rrs.

There has been much progress to activate testing sites and bring on labs to process the testing. This means the number of positive cases will increase. In the daily press briefings with Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger and LA County Director of Public Health Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the theme has been consistent: it is now more critical than ever to stay inside, ensure social distancing, and be “Safer-at Home.”

Many are infected and may not have symptoms
Social distancing and “Safer-at-Home” are the key to protecting our community and flattening the curve.
As testing increases, so will the number of positive cases

This is the week to stay inside if at all possible.

The surge of cases is expected to increase and adherence to the Health Order will help slow the spread and allow those who are critically ill to have access to hospital beds and ICU care.
