Ochsner Lafayette General says they will administer COVID-19 testing at two locations in Acadiana this week.

Testing will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, November 4 at the Basile Rural Health Clinic in Basile and Friday, November 6, at the Domingue Center in Lafayette.

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

Ochsner says that 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. Walk ups, bike ups or those dropped off by public transportation will be accommodated, they say.

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.

Testing could be canceled due to weather conditions.
