That’s how you do it.

Los Angeles became the first major city in the US to offer free coronavirus tests to every resident — even ones not experiencing symptoms, officials announced Wednesday.

Under the program, which also applies to everyone residing in all of Los Angeles County, those with symptoms including fever, cough and shortness of breath, and front-line workers will still be prioritized, Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Twitter.

Tests can be given on the same day or day after residents make an appointment for one.
