Besides the stadium and health facilities, local authorities have requisitioned drugstores, parks, universities and even the Mexican Consulate General, according to the city’s website. People with symptoms are given priority. However, all residents have access to screening. People wishing to be tested at Dodgers Stadium must drive there and take the sample themselves without leaving their vehicle.
