Where can my child get a COVID-19 test? Use the LAUSD Appointment Scheduler to make an appointment at any of the surrounding schools in our area.
If my child is sick and I suspect COVID-19, what should I do? How do I get my child tested for this virus? We advise parents or guardians to call their child’s pediatrician first to discuss their child’s symptoms. If parents need resources for medical care they may call the school at (323) 441-4600, and we will refer the family to health services.
Should I be concerned about the coronavirus? How dangerous is it? Is it treatable? What are the symptoms? Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles has a separate blog post that helps explain the basics of the novel coronavirus available here: What You Should Know About the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
