Eligibility requirements were recently updated for COVID-19 testing:
COVID-19 Testing at the South Bay Galleria
At this time, testing is limited in Los Angeles to people with symptoms, or people who have been prevented from working because of contact with someone who has been infected.
Please note that same or next day testing appointments are prioritized for individuals over 65, or who have underlying chronic health conditions.
Appointments have been filling up quickly. Please continue to check the site for availability at the South Bay Galleria or make an appointment at another LA County site.
If you are experiencing acute symptoms such as severe shortness of breath or are in distress related to COVID-19 symptoms, contact your physician. If it is an emergency, dial 911.
For more questions about testing, please visit the City of Los Angeles’ FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions.
Tests are also prioritized for first responders, critical government workers and health care professionals. Those individuals should inquire at their affiliated hospital, medical center or department for information about how to schedule a same or next day appointment for testing.

COVID-19 Testing Through Your Health Care Provider
Please note, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is asking people with insurance to first contact their medical provider to request COVID-19 testing through their own networks to ensure the testing sites help those who need it the most.
If a person develops symptoms of COVID-19 and has reason to believe they may have been exposed, they should call their health care provider or local health department before seeking care. If you don’t have a provider, call 2-1-1 for help finding a clinician near you.
