Anyone who’s been keeping up with the county of Los Angeles’s statistics on covid 19 cases for all of the county’s cities (http://publichealth.lacounty.
The city of Inglewood currently has a total of 982 covid cases. Week after week, for months, the city of Inglewood even though It only has about 110,000 residents, is consistently around the top 15 in highest total cases, as high as the top 6 in most cases and as of 6-28-20 is actually #3 in otal deaths from the virus, with 62 deaths. Inglewood is actually only topped by the city of Los Angeles, with 3.9 million residents, and Glendale, with 201,000 residents.
Visual inspection of the Inglewood testing sites shows scarce, to relatively no lines for testing, outside of the first day it opened which drew large media presence. Residents have publicly shared in Facebook group Eye Witness News in Inglewood that when you call to schedule a test at The Forum, you are being told no appointments are available.
The city of Inglewood has made COVID-19 testing mandatory, for all city employees, on a bi-weekly basis. The city schedule both the appointments and times employees are to show up. The city of Inglewood expects to receive reimbursement for COVID-19 related expenditures but it remains to be seen why the general public are having consistent difficulty with testing at this location.
