COVID-19 testing for patients

Leer en español

Thanks to many people staying Safer at Home, we seem to be flattening the curve in Southern California. This is very good news, and it will help us save lives.

If you have fever, cough or shortness of breath, please call us at (310) 392-8636. We can schedule a phone visit with a provider right away (usually on the same day) and, if needed, we can bring you in to test for COVID-19. 

The City of Los Angeles is also offering free COVID-19 tests to people who have symptoms of the illness and live in Los Angeles County. You can make an appointment and get other information about this testing at

Please know that there should be no charge to test for active COVID-19 infection, whether the test happens at Venice Family Clinic, through the City of Los Angeles or anywhere else. You do not need to pay to be tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

If you are sick or need other medical assistance, we encourage you to seek medical care. We are open and seeing patients for medical, mental health, and urgent dental needs. Click here to learn more about our current services or call us at (310) 392-8636.

You can find the most updated guidance about how to take care of yourself from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (see the section titled “What You Should Know”) or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
