LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Online registration began today for a free coronavirus antibody testing program that will be offered for six days over the next two weeks in the parking lot of Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTRATE: www.guardaheart.org   The free testing is being offered through a partnership between the mall, Intentional Talk Radio and Orange County-based nonprofit GUARDaHEART. Testing will be offered on an appointment basis from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 5-7 and Aug. 12-14 at Stocker and Victoria View Park avenues.   The tests are designed to detect COVID-19 antibodies, which indicate that the test subject was at one time infected with the coronavirus.   "This will help ensure people of Los Angeles to know whether they have developed COVID-19 antibodies, as we work to reopen our community," GUARDaHEART founder Estrella Harrington said in a statement. "It will help slow the spread and reduce the risk of community spread. We want to ensure finances are no obstacle to battling the COVID-19 virus and ensure a safe reopening."   The testing will be offered no charge. People can schedule a test at www.guardaheart.org.Walk-up testing will also be available, but people without appointments may experience longer wait times.
