April 3, 2020

Hello Monrovians, 

As we head into the weekend, I want to thank you for doing your part and staying at home. By giving 100% of our efforts towards social distancing, we are making THE difference in Monrovia. Remember, social distancing does not mean social isolation, so take some time this weekend to check-in on family, friends and neighbors with a call or a text. I guarantee you that it will brighten up that person's day. 

Lastly, please note, there will be no update on Saturday and Sunday. I will return with a new City Manager’s Update on Monday, April 6.



Los Angeles County Opens New Drive-Up Testing Sites

The County of Los Angeles is partnering with cities across the county to develop a network of drive-up, mobile testing sites. They are also helping increase resources for local health centers who have begun testing for COVID-19, and are integrating them into the countywide network.

Currently, County-City partnerships have been established based on capacity and geographic locations. The following locations have started (or will soon begin) testing for COVID-19:

  • High Desert Medical Group (Lancaster) - As of 4/1 
  • Glendale Memorial Hospital (Glendale) - As of 4/1 
  • Pomona Fairplex (Pomona) - As of 4/3 
  • Antelope Valley Mall (Palmdale) - As of 4/3 
  • South Bay Galleria (Redondo Beach) - As of 4/3

The testing is by appointment only. Walk-up appointments are not available.

For the moment, these tests are strictly limited to residents of Los Angeles County who are in the most high-risk categories and most vulnerable.

Individuals eligible for testing at this time include:

  • Those with symptoms who are 65 and older 
  • Those with symptoms who have underlying chronic health conditions 
  • Those who are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine period due to a confirmed COVID-19 exposure (with more than 7 days of quarantine remaining)

Anyone interested in getting tested must first register on the screening website
