On Friday, July 24, Lafayette General Health will resume its community COVID-19 testing efforts.

Testing will be held from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Carencro Community Center on N. University Avenue.

Testing is open to Louisiana residents of all ages who wish to know if they have the novel coronavirus, according to LGH.

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.

LGH says 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. No more than four people per vehicle.

Community members will receive their test results within 3 - 5 days via the MyHealth patient portal. Those with a positive result will also be contacted by phone, according to LGH.

The testing site may be canceled due to weather conditions.
