Southern California city offering free COVID-19 testing site
Carson city officials Monday opened the first COVID-19 testing site in Southern California that is free to all residents, including those who are asymptomatic, CBS Los Angeles reports.
“Whether you’re rich or poor, you can be tested. Whether you’re insured or uninsured, you can be tested. Whether you’re a resident of Carson or a non-resident of Carson, you can be tested. But, the priority is Carson residents,” said Carson Mayor Albert Robles.
Robles said the free drive-through screening at the Congresswoman Juanita Millender-McDonald Community Center is not just for people who show symptoms.
People who may have been exposed to the virus can also get tested. The mayor said the city council has been asking LA County for a testing site because of the high infection rate among its population.
