Iberia Medical Center will offer a drive-through screening for COVID-19 on Wednesday.

The screening will be at North Lewis Elementary from 9 a.m. until noon.

People will be screened, and then tested for 'flu. If they're negative for flu and meet the criteria, their sample will be tested for COVID-19.

To be tested, you must have symptoms, including a fever of more than 100.4 and respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath. People at risk include health care providers, older people, people with underlying medical conditions, people living in communal situations and pregnant people.
