EL MONTE (CBSLA) — Three new coronavirus testing sites opened Wednesday at the San Gabriel Valley Airport in El Monte, at the Bellflower Civic Center's parking structure and at the Forum in Inglewood.
"All the experts are telling us that we won't be able to get back to some sense of normalcy until thee is a system of robust testing in place," El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero said.
The Bellflower Civic Center testing site is located in the parking structure, 16600 Civic Center Drive, while the new drive-up site at the Forum is at 3900 W. Manchester Blvd.
As with other new sites that have been established in the last couple of weeks, people who are eligible for a test and have an appointment can stay in their cars for their tests and swab their own mouths and throats. The testing process takes between five and 10 minutes to complete, but wait times will depend on the time of the day.
New testing sites were also opened this week in Riverside County at the Perris Fairgrounds — where officials hope to conduct at least 250 tests a day — and at Montclair Plaza in San Bernardino County.
