Crowds could be returning to Dodger Stadium, but not to watch baseball.

On Friday, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that the testing site at Chavez Ravine would be expanded and become the largest in Los Angeles.

The drive-thru site will now be able to handle testing for 6,000 people a day.

“That’s three times larger than any testing site that we have,” Garcetti said. 

The site is in partnership with CORE and LAFD and will be up and running by Tuesday, May 26th.

The stadium’s parking lot is being reconfigured with large screens so as to make the testing process easier to navigate.

“So when drivers get to the front line, they’ll know exactly what to do and how to do it,” the mayor said.

Garcetti previously said all residents with or without COVID-19 symptoms, can now be tested. 

The mouth swab tests will be open to any resident of LA County, with tests administered at ten sites total citywide.
