How Long Should It Take To Get My COVID-19 Test Results In LA?
Many of our readers have asked us how long the coronavirus test results take, and our reporters have wondered the same thing. Some folks were told that they'd get results in a day or two and waited five days; some were told five days and are still waiting.
We reached out to Christina Ghaly, the director of health services at the Los Angeles County Health Agency, for answers. She told us:
"The average turnaround time among the county-operated testing sites right now is still about three days. There are certainly some cases in which it's taking longer than three days. That number is an average, though."
If you're waiting on test results, Ghaly suggests checking the testing website.
