LAC DPH Health Advisory: Health Officer Order Requiring Diagnostic Testing Access
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LAC DPH) issued a health advisory on July 13, 2020. Adequate and widespread availability of diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2 is essential to slowing the spread of COVID-19.
By order of the County Health Officer, all healthcare facilities in Los Angeles County must have an established laboratory relationship for the provision of diagnostic (PCR) testing for SARS-CoV-2 effective July 31, 2020.
Because guidance for the prevention and management of COVID-19 may change, providers and staff are encouraged to visit the Los Angeles Health Alert Network (LAHAN) website frequently. You can also subscribe to the LAHAN to receive alerts, advisories, and updates from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
