Free COVID-19 Testing by the L.A. Black Worker Center and St. Johns

Every one of us, regardless of where we live or what we look like, needs accessible healthcare, paid time to recover and resources to make ends meet. Black, brown and Indigenous communities have always been denied the resources needed to be healthy and so it is absolutely predictable that we are the communities hit hardest by COVID-19.

When testing and treatment is provided for all of us, regardless of where we live or where we come from, we are all better off. We’re sharing information on free COVID-19 testing provided by the L.A. Black Worker Center in conjunction with St Johns.

There’s an old saying that perfectly sums up what Black workers are facing during the coronavirus pandemic: “When America catches a cold, Black people get the flu”. While COVID-19 has brought hardship to many, it disproportionately impacts Black people and calls to attention the vast inequities in access to testing.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, we must ensure optimal care, identify high-risk patients, and reduce community spread in order to be safe from COVID-19. For this reason, the LA Black Worker Center is partnering with St. Johns to provide free mobile COVID-19 testing.

Are you a Black worker? Is there a possibility that you have been exposed to COVID-19?

If the answer is yes, whether you are working or not, please use one of the forms below to schedule your 15-minute appointment and contact the Black Worker Center if you have any additional questions. The resiliency of Black workers rests in working together.
