header-title-decorationCOVID-19: LA County Pick-up Testing Kit Program

New testing program designed to increase and facilitate access to COVID-19 tests for LA County residents unable to obtain appointments. The Pick-Up Testing Kit program allows residents to pick up a PCR test kit, perform the test and return the completed test to designated sites for processing. Residents will be notified of their test results within 24-48 hours.

Pick-Up Testing Kits will be available without an appointment and until daily supplies are exhausted at designated locations.

Note: The Pick-Up Testing Kit is a PCR test that requires individuals to register online with a smartphone.  Follow the instructions inside the package to self-test and return completed test for results. These kits are not rapid test kits. If not feasible, schedule an appointment at one of our testing locations.

Pick-Up Testing Kits are provided at no cost to you if you meet the following criteria:

  • Have symptoms of COVID-19OR
  • Think you were exposed to COVID-19.

The new Pick-Up Testing Kit program will operate at 13 testing sites across LA County. See below for full listing of locations.

How The “Pick-up Test Kit” Works:  

Residents can pick up a Home Test Kits at selected sites, perform the test at home or in their car, and return the completed test with their sample to the same site.
