COVID-19 Update

This is a friendly reminder that the California Department of Public Health requires healthcare providers and patients to wear a mask while in our office, regardless of whether you are vaccinated or not. Would you mind doing your part and helping us keep our PVMG community healthy and safe?

We are experiencing more and more cases of the Delta variant, and it’s important to remember that COVID-19 is not over. We have returned to the recommendation that children and adults be tested for COVID-19 if they are experiencing COVID symptoms. We encourage you and your family to continue wearing your mask, especially indoors and limit your exposure to those not vaccinated from COVID-19.

School, sports, jobs, and other activities and events have begun to resume in person. As a result, more and more places have implemented COVID-19 testing requirements. In fact, as of September 1st, the LA County Department of Public Health is requiring COVID-19 testing at a minimum of one time per week for anyone participating in organized sports.

Palos Verdes Medical Group still offers rapid PCR testing that satisfies the testing requirement for most of these organizations. COVID-19 test results are available the same day. Our COVID-19 testing is offered seven days a week via our drive-thru testing site located on the top floor of the Promenade on the Peninsula parking structure. We urge you to schedule an appointment online; however, if you don’t see any available appointments, be sure to give us a call, and we will make sure you are seen that day. Need results even quicker? Just let us know, and we will do our best to get your COVID-19 test results as soon as possible. At this time, COVID-19 testing is covered at no cost by most insurance plans. As always, we encourage you to call your insurance company with any questions.
