“Outside of the federal test sites set up in Orleans and Jefferson parish, testing for COVID-19 has been limited statewide,” said Jewell. “While testing is still not as abundant as we would like it, we are continuing to work to get additional testing resources for St. Charles Parish residents and thank Access Health Louisiana for their assistance in setting up this Mobile Testing Site to accommodate our needs.”

Those experiencing a cough, shortness of breath and a fever of 100.4 or greater should call Access Health Louisiana to set an appointment to be tested.

Upon arrival, individuals will go through a verification process which includes a temperature reading and will then be tested for COVID-19.
