The city of Los Angeles teamed up with the nonprofit CORE to offer residents free COVID-19 testing at a Food4Less in the Westlake District on Monday, no appointment necessary.
People can get tested at a walk-up site at 1700 W. Sixth St. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to Councilman Gil Cedillo’s office. Testing will be offered during the same hours on Friday, Aug. 14.
Those interested but not available can make an appointment to get tested through the city’s website.
Officials set up the pop-up testing site in Westlake after a coronavirus outbreak was confirmed at the grocery store. Cedillo’s office said the the area is home to many immigrants and workers who are some of the hardest hit by COVID-19.

Editor’s note: An earlier press release from the city stated an incorrect date for the second pop-up testing event this week in Westlake. This post has been updated.
