SOUTH LA WALK-UP TESTING FACILITY: The City is launching a new walk-up testing site in South Los Angeles at the Kedren Community Health Center. Most of the City’s testing sites are drive-through sites, where people are tested from their cars. Recognizing that many people don’t have cars, we are opening a second walk-up site in an area that serves the African American Community. You must still make an appointment at coronavirus.lacity.org
REMEMBER: Testing is only granted by appointment only. Testing is available for anyone EXHIBITING symptoms. We are still prioritizing people over the age of 65, however, anyone showing symptoms can now request a test at coronavirus.lacity.org
GOAL: 60,000 LA County residents will have been tested by the end of this week

Where’s your stimulus check?
If you qualify for an economic impact payment, the federal government is neck-deep in the process of depositing the first stimulus checks of up to $1,200 into the bank accounts of eligible US residents, beginning with people who have direct deposit set up with the IRS. Millions of people qualify for the payment, so when you receive the money could take time.
If you’re eligible, you can track the status of your check at any time through an online portal on the IRS website called Get My Payment. Use these step-by-step instructions on how to use the online tracking tool.
