Los Angeles County's pop-up testing sites will stop using a COVID-19 test produced by Curative that has been found to have a risk of false negative results.

Meanwhile, the county expects to start the next phase of its vaccination plan as soon as next week, according to the Press Enterprise.

The next round of vaccinations will include residents 75 years or older, as well as essential workers such as teachers, law enforcement and people who work in childcare and grocery stores.

So far, the county has vaccinated more than 28,000 people.

Riverside County has received about 80,000 doses and expects about another 100,000 before the end of January.
