LA County Ready To Send COVID-19 Test Kits To Homes Of Disabled, Elderly
L.A. County will begin mailing COVID-19 test kits to people who have mobility issues, be they disabled or elderly.
With the current daily average of new cases at more than 5,300, public health officials are doing whatever they can to keep those who are sick from mixing with and infecting others.
The pilot program will run through mid-January, said Dr. Christina Ghaly, director of the County Department of Health Services:
"Individuals will be able to have test specimen collection kits mailed to their home where they can self swab and then mail the sample back to the lab."
