Acadia Parish has partnered with the Louisiana Department of Health to establish a mobile COVID-19 testing site in Crowley.
Free, drive-thru tests will be performed in Crowley:
· Monday and Wednesday, July 13 and July 15
8 AM to 6 PM.
Acadia Rice Arena. 159 Cherokee Drive. Crowley. LA. 70526
· Saturday, July 18
8 AM to 6 PM
Love of Christ Baptist Church. 1120 West Hutchinson Ave, Crowley, LA 70526
· No ID is needed for testing, but registration is required.
· Pre-registration is strongly encouraged and should be completed at www.DoINeedaCOVID19test.com. Under Test Locations, click “Louisiana” and choose the testing site and day that you plan to attend.
· People will be allowed to register at the site, but can expect longer waits.
· Testing will be available for any Louisiana resident at least 5 years old. Guardians must accompany anyone under 16.
· People must provide a phone number and email address.
· This mobile tests site is part of the federal government’s effort to support communities that have been identified as COVID-19 hotspots, or communities where there has been a recent and intense level of new cases and hospitalizations related to the ongoing outbreak.
· Testing is open to everyone.
· You do not need to be a resident of Acadia Parish to be tested.
· The testing site will be conducted as a drive-thru test site. Once on site, those being tested will need to wear a mask and stay in their cars. There will be separate lines for those who have pre-registered and for those who must register on-site.
· The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose on site while in their vehicles. This will be observed by trained personnel to ensure the sample is taken correctly, and drop the sealed sample into a container on their way out of the drive-thru site.
How will results be obtained? · Results will be emailed, and posted online at www.DoINeedaCOVID19test.com.
· It is expected to take three to five days to get test results.
· People who test positive will also be contacted by phone. There is no phone number for people to call to get their results.
