The site is able to test up to 3,000 people per day, which will soon be added to the city's antigen testing pilot program.

“Testing remains an essential tool in stopping the spread of COVID-19, tracking the virus, and saving lives -- and we will continue to deploy our vital testing resources where the data and science tell us they will do the most good,'' Garcetti said in a statement Friday. “Our new San Fernando Park site will deliver critical support to a community hit hard by this pandemic, and ensure Valley residents know their status and take the necessary steps to protect themselves and those around them.''

The city can test more than 38,000 people a day across its testing sites.
