LAFAYETTE — The Lafayette Fire Department (LFD) will be distributing free at-home COVID-19 test kits on Friday, Dec. 24.

The event is in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) and will be held at the Central Fire Station in Lafayette from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M.

Each resident will only receive two test kits, they say, as supplies are limited.

Fire Chief Benoit tells KATC, “As the holidays approach and families began to gather, the fire department is assisting in keeping the public safe by offering our main fire station as a pick-up location for the test kits. With the recent surge of Omicron cases, it’s important that we as a community work to reduce the spread.”

Central Fire Station is located at 300 East Vermilion Street in Lafayette.

For more information, contact the Central Fire Station at 337-291-8700.
