We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Los Angeles Unified School District students can pick up COVID-19 rapid tests at the district's grab-and-go sites starting today (Friday, Jan. 7).

Each student gets two tests and can get them until noon Friday and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday. Students must present a negative COVID-19 test before they're allowed back on campus for classes on Tuesday, due to a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The district requires all students and staff to have the negative COVID-19 test for a baseline in addition to weekly testing, regardless of vaccination status. Baseline testing needs to be completed by Monday.

There are 63 pickup locations across L.A. County. Here are 5 spots to head to in each sub district (and see more using the map below):
