Hollywood actor Sean Penn poses for the media during an event.
Actor Sean Penn has partnered with authorities in Los Angeles to run a coronavirus testing centre.
The actor and his non-profit, CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort), have partnered with the city to help run a coronavirus testing center in East L.A, reports Hollywoodreporter.com.
"Thank you @SeanPenn and volunteers from CORE who are partnering with us and running a COVID pop-up testing location in East LA. #HeroesOfCovid19 #LAStrong #COVID19," Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Jeff Gorell wrote Tuesday on Twitter accompanied by a picture of Penn and company.
According to CORE's site, the organisation is "working in partnership with the City of Los Angeles to promote safe and efficient COVID-19 testing to the vulnerable populations in Los Angeles. The drive-through testing clinics will be available to those who pre-qualify as high risk".
Information if Penn will also be manning the pop-up location is not available immediately. The exact location is unclear.
The 59-year-old actor began CORE as a relief organisation, which he formed after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Penn is just as well known for his acting career as his vast humanitarian work.
