A drive-thru coronavirus testing center for first-responders and essential city employees was in operation Saturday morning at a fire department training facility near Dodger Stadium.
Vehicles drove past signs that said "City Employees Only" and a pre-screening checkpoint at the entrance of the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center on Stadium Way. The vehicles then drove through the parking lot and stopped next to a canopy, where persons in protective gear approached each driver.
The vehicles then drove off in traffic lanes marked off by orange traffic cones.
A vehicle from Quest Diagnostics, the private lab that has been testing for COVID-19, was parked in the lot along with several vehicles from the fire department and an LAPD patrol car.
A spokesman for Eric Garcetti said the site is also open to healthcare workers countywide and outreach staff with the L.A. Homeless Services Authority.
At least three LAPD officers have tested positive for the virus, reports the L.A. Times.
