"I may not live in Pico Rivera, but Pico Rivera is my city too. I go to the neighborhood Walmart, shop at Aldi, and get my King Taco fix in Pico Rivera," says Masks Can Help founder Jim Lee. "It was great to see everyone coming together to help the community out."

The city of Pico Rivera, non-profit US Health Fairs, Assembly Woman Garcia's office, Senator Archuleta's office, and Rio Hondo College made a combined effort to start coronavirus testing.

"No one will be denied," the city said in a news release. Priority will be given to city residents, but people from the surrounding areas can also sign up.

Tests are administered through a nasal test, and results should be received within 24-36 hours.
