Are You a Medical Professional Who Wants to Help Fight COVID-19? Los Angeles Wants to Hear From You.

The city and county of Los Angeles have launched a recruitment portal for medical professionals who could assist a flood of patients with COVID-19. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the new service Tuesday.

Like other parts of the country, L.A. is expecting a shortage of medical personnel as coronavirus cases rise. Those with medical experience can offer their services here.

Anyone interested in signing up should be prepared to answer questions about:

  • Medical experience and specialty
  • Availability
  • Languages
  • Whether they belong to an at-risk group
  • Whether or not they are willing to work pro-bono

L.A. County has seen more than 1,800 confirmed coronavirus cases and at least 32 deaths.
