The County of Los Angeles is regularly updating resources on COVID-19 and offers today's update in an effort to keep you and yours informed. Please share the following up-to-date information:

COVID-19 Facts

Don't let misconceptions about COVID-19 hinder LA County's ability to prevent future spread. Know the facts, so you and your community can stay safe:

COVID-19 Fact 3



COVID-19 Fact #3: Reopening does NOT mean the spread of COVID-19 is "under control."



Why? Safer at Home was a necessary measure, but not a sustainable path forward. Safely reopening is important to the future of our society. We must follow health practices including: wearing face coverings, washing hands frequently, keeping 6 feet apart, and staying home when sick.

Next Day COVID-19 Testing Still Available in LA County

COVID-19 Testing Update

Free, next day appointments for a COVID-19 test are still available in LA County at a variety of sites. LA County residents in need of COVID-19 testing must register, in advance, for a next-day appointment. Remember, availability may change over the course of the day.

LA County residents are encouraged to call their primary care provider if they are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Wherever possible, residents should receive testing in consultation with their healthcare provider to ensure continuity of care & optimal follow-up. If you do not have insurance and need help connecting with a healthcare provider, dial 2-1-1 for assistance.

Project Roomkey Update

Project Roomkey Update

LA County prevailed, today, in litigation that allows Project Roomkey to continue serving the most vulnerable residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cities of Bell Gardens and Lynwood have been dismissed from a lawsuit brought by LA County. These cities had previously enacted legislation to bar local hotels from participating in Project Roomkey and related temporary housing programs run by LA County. The County sought to block their efforts.

Read today's press release for more details, including background information, the County's filing, and an amicus brief in support of Project Roomkey.
