Also today the County Health Department announced the following actions it plans to take should there be a surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations:
As a reminder, Los Angeles County residents who need a COVID-19 test should first try their primary health care provider. Individuals who are uninsured or unable to access testing through their regular health care facility should visit the Los Angeles County website to make an appointment for a free COVID-19 test.
As of today, the nearest County-sponsored COVID-19 testing sites for Diamond Bar residents are Southern California Medical Center, ParkTree Community Health Center, and the Pomona Fairplex. All three sites are located in Pomona and they all require appointments. For more information or to secure an appointment visit https://covid19.lacounty.gov/testing/.
