HACIENDA HEIGHTS (CNS) - A temporary COVID-19 testing site with a daily capacity of 1,000 tests opened at William Steinmetz Park in Hacienda Heights, Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis announced today.
The site, at 1545 S. Stimson Ave., is in partnership with CORE and will operate Tuesday through Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. until moving to a new location after Jan. 22. People can get tested at the site without health insurance or documented immigration status.
``I continue to work diligently, through various partnerships, to increase testing capacity in the First District,'' Solis said. ``Our communities are looking to the county for resources, and I am glad we are able to launch another testing site that residents can easily access.''
The site is one of 25 county- and state-operated COVID-19 testing sites in Solis' district, and four of those sites were announced in the last week at Centro Estrella in East Los Angeles, Morgan Park in Baldwin Park, South El Monte Community Center and La Puente Community Center.
