Long Beach Mayor Cites Robust Testing, Says 'Weeks, Not Months' For Changes
Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia said today his city is “weeks, not months, away from some meaningful changes” to the city’s stay-at-home orders, which are currently in place through at least May 15.
But that more optimistic outlook hinges on another announcement made at Monday's press briefing: New testing centers for COVID-19 will open at Long Beach City College’s East Long Beach campus and a yet-undisclosed location in North Long Beach by the end of the week, bringing the city’s daily testing capacity to roughly 1,000 per day.
Long Beach “has one of the most robust testing systems in the state of California, certainly for a city of our size,” Garcia said.
