Dodger Stadium COVID Testing Site to Reopen on Monday

Temporarily closed due to complaints, the site is back up and running.

Dodger Stadium has been serving as one of the largest COVID-19 for the last few months. Understandably, that has drawn a lot of people in from Los Angeles hoping to get tested in the drive-thru service set up in the parking lot. 

If you’ve visited Dodger Stadium to get a test at any point, you’ve likely noticed the traffic that builds up on the streets outside. The ability to test over 13,000 Los Angeles residents a day often results in cars spilling out into the side streets and blocking lanes at times. That build up of traffic was too much for the residents around the stadium, who asked that officials rethink their strategy.

All of this led to the Dodger Stadium testing site being closed over the weekend. Officials were able to draw up a new plan that they estimate will keep more than 600 vehicles being rerouted from surrounding streets. A crew came in while the site was closed with traffic cones and power generators for lights over the holiday weekend. 

The testing site at Dodger Stadium is open to all residents of Los Angeles. If you are looking to get your COVID-19 test done there, you can visit the LA County testing website here. Appointments are generally required.
