Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Wednesday that all residents of Los Angeles County now can get free coronavirus testing at city-run sites. Previously, testing was available only to those with symptoms as well as essential workers and in nursing homes and other institutions. However some health experts have questioned how well the public testing process is Los Angeles County actually works. A story in the Los Angeles Times notes that the federal Food and Drug Administration doesn’t prefer that testing process, which involves a quick swab of the throat, and recommends a deeper process in which one inserts a swab deep into the nose.

When it comes to same- or next-day testing, priority will continue to be given to people suffering a fever, cough and shortness of breath. Those who want to book a testing appointment can do so online

The best protection against COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, self-isolate if you are sick, practice physical distancing (especially by staying at home) and wear a clean face covering when out in the public procuring or providing essential services.N95 and surgical masks should only be used by healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers providing care for people who are ill.

Essential businesses must provide a cloth face covering for all employees to wear while performing duties that involve contact with other employees and or the public and to post physical distancing plans. The public is required to wear a face covering to enter essential businesses as well. Beaches, trails and trailheads and non-essential businesses remain closed, and all public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit remain prohibited.
