Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has a new testing program designed to increase and facilitate access to COVID-19 tests for LA County residents who are 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.
The new Pick-Up Testing Kit program will operate at 13 testing sites across LA County. The COVID-19 Testing site at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Blvd is one of those participating locations. The site is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Pick-Up Testing Kits will be available without an appointment and until daily supplies are exhausted at designated locations. In alignment with all our LA County operated testing locations, the Pick-Up Testing Kits will also be concurrently testing for COVID-19 and Influenza (A and B).
Note: The Pick-Up Testing Kit is a PCR test that requires individuals to register, self-test and return completed test for results. These kits are not rapid test kits.
Pick-Up Testing Kits are provided at no cost to for those who meet the following criteria:
- Have symptoms of COVID-19, OR
- Think you were exposed to COVID-19.
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.
