PCR COVID Testing in Los Angeles
PCR COVID Testing in Los Angeles is open to serve a large part of the Southern California community. Los Angeles is known around the world as a cultural hub for entertainment and fashion. It is the city with the largest population in the state of California, and is one of the largest cities in the United States by population. As of 2018, Los Angeles County reported having over 10 million residents, making it the most populous county in the United States. Due to this high population density, Los Angeles has had a difficult time containing the COVID-19 virus since March. Cases have spiked, businesses have shut down, and safer at home orders were set in place. Now that we are about 8 months into the pandemic, Los Angeles has begun to open back up again. Restaurants, retailers, and other public places are taking precautions such as wearing masks, social distancing, and increased sanitation. The other action Los Angeles is taking in order to slow the spread of the virus is the increase of testing. Scaling testing sites is vital in order to access how the city is doing in terms of positive case numbers. Lifeline Health has partnered with Covid Clinic in order to help with scaling COVID testing sites in Los Angeles. Lifeline Health has opened up a new PCR COVID Testing Site in the Los Angeles area (Torrance, California) making getting tested for COVID a painless and safe experience. You can book an appointment for a rapid COVID-19 test at our Los Angeles/Torrance site through our website.
What is PCR COVID Testing?
The FDA website is an excellent source of information for all things COVID-19 testing related. They have lists of every test that is currently approved, how they collect samples, and how fast they will yield results. The FDA has approved two types of tests to detect COVID-19: molecular and antigen testing. PCR COVID testing is a form of molecular testing that is administered through a nasal or mouth swab. This test detects genetic material of the virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Lifeline Health, and our partners at Covid Clinic, provide PCR COVID Testing at each of our sites, that are administered by certified professionals. Our drive through PCR COVID testing sites in the Los Angeles and Riverside County area provide FDA approved tests with a 99% specificity.
