LAX has announced that they are providing COVID-19 testing to passengers who travel thru.
According to The Los Angeles Times:
“At Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), three testing sites opened earlier this month.
They are offering PCR-type nasal-swab tests at the Tom Bradley International Terminal, Terminal 2, and Terminal 6. The tests, conducted by Clarity Lab Solutions, are priced at $150, with results expected within 24 hours. Testing is offered from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on a walk-up basis.
[…] followed by another 180,000-plus between Dec. 17 and Jan. 3. That amounts to about 60% of the passenger traffic the airport saw last year. Ontario airport is about 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.”
As we approach the eighth month of this pandemic, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for when life will get back to normal. As we adjust to this form of living, more testing sites like these will only help to stop the spread of the virus.
