“Since we became the first big city in America to offer universal testing, free to everyone with or without symptoms, we’ve tested more times than there are people in the city of Los Angeles, over four million tests across 14 city-run sites, 136 nursing facilities and over 150 mobile sites we’ve set up around the city,” Garcetti said during his COVID-19 briefing last week.
Angelenos can register for their tests while waiting in line and are told to bring their insurance information or identification if they don’t have insurance.READ MORE: Authorities Find Silvia Ochoa De Hernandez, Woman Who Went Missing In South Gate
