in-person dining at restaurants and personal grooming services, and requires 100% masking

Testing results are available for more than 3,838,000 individuals with 10% of all people testing 

Anyone who receives a positive lab result or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, should 
expect a call from a Public Health specialist to discuss how to protect themselves and others, how 
to isolate or quarantine, how to access services and providers, and to talk through other concerns or 
questions a case or contact may have. We encourage anyone who receives a call from Public Health 
to speak to our Public Health specialist. If a Public Health specialist calls, it will display on your 
phone as “LA Public Health” or as 833-641-0305.

It’s important if someone thinks they could be positive for COVID-19 and are awaiting testing results, 
to stay at home and isolate until they receive results. If the results are positive, then they will 
need to self-isolate for 10 days and 24 hours after symptoms and fever subside.

Public Health reminds anyone with a positive lab result who has not yet connected with a Public 
Health specialist to call 1-833-540-0473 for support and information about services. Residents who 
do not have COVID-19 should continue calling 211 for resources or more information.
