How long does it take to get my COVID-19 test result?

Although turnaround times for test results have varied during the pandemic, new rapid-result tests are being implemented all over the country and most people will receive test results within 24-48 hours of COVID-19 testing. Anyone who may have been exposed should isolate themselves at home for 14 days or unless told otherwise by their healthcare provider.

Visit the LA County Testing website or call 2-1-1 to find a testing site nearest to you. If you live in Carson, the closest testing center is the Angeles Community Health Center, 1030 W Gardena Blvd.
