Lafayette General Health will be administering COVID-19 testing from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday (July 29) and Friday (July 31) of this week at Northgate Mall.

Testing is open to Louisiana residents of all ages who wish to know if they have the novel coronavirus. This investment in enhanced community testing is a critical step towards a safe reopening.

Testing is available to anyone, even those who may be asymptomatic. Members of the community should bring a valid ID and insurance card, if applicable. There are no out-of-pocket costs for those seeking a test and no one will be turned away based on their insurance status.

Testing will be conducted in a drive-thru setting and everyone should remain in the vehicle at all times.There should be no more than four people per vehicle.

Walks up, bikes up or drop off by public transportation will be accommodated. Community members will receive their test results within three to five days via the MyHealth patient portal. Those with a positive result will also be contacted by phone.

For the safety of our healthcare workers, testing could be canceled due to weather conditions.

Wednesday, July 29 and Friday, July 31
8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Northgate Mall (Castille Road Entrance)
1800 NE Evangeline Thruway
