The YMCA offers free COVID-19 tests in the LA area; where to get one

A dozen YMCA branches in the Los Angeles area will offer COVID-19 tests, as high demand overwhelms many local test sites.

This gives residents another chance to get a COVID test at a time when recent shortcomings have led to long queues – sometimes resulting in waiting hours of several hours – outside several local test centers in the region. Test kits at home have also been difficult to get lately.

The increase in demand comes as coronavirus infections increase rapidly in the region. On Thursday, Los Angeles County reported more than 37,000 new cases – the highest number yet for a single day during the pandemic.

Samples at YMCA are free and it is not necessary to book an appointment. Many of the places will be open on Saturdays.
