    It would help if there was any information on how to make an appointment. I’ve been searching all over the internet and can’t find any information on how to make an appointment for the drive thru testing at Hansen Dam. What’s the point of reporting this if you’re not providing “HELPFUL” information to the public?

    1. I think you would probably have to contact your doctor, who would make the appointment for you. They’re probably not set up yet for the general public to make appointments directly. Agree with you that they should give that information in these articles, though.

    I received this text link from the county: http://coronavirus.lacity.org/testing.
    I know two people who got tested today through this link, one with and the other without a doctor’s order
