Free COVID-19 Virus Testing Available at DePaul Community Health Centers

DePaul Community Health Centers (DCHC) offers free COVID-19 virus testing at all 10 of its health centers located in metro New Orleans. DCHC’s increased testing capacity comes as a result of collaborating with both Louisiana Healthcare Connections and Quest Diagnostics to test both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals in underserved communities.

Tests available at DCHC include both the COVID-19 PCR Test (to confirm current COVID-19 infection) and the COVID-19 IgG Serology Test (to confirm previous COVID-19 infection). Walk-ins are welcome; however, making an appointment is encouraged. Call (504) 207-3060 or visit www.DePaulCommunityHealthCenters.org.

“We thank both Louisiana Healthcare Connections and Quest for helping DCHC to enhance our COVID-19 virus testing offerings,” said Michael G. Griffin, DCHC’s president/CEO. “While this pandemic impacts everyone, persons in underserved communities are being adversely affected in greater numbers. We believe that everyone, regardless of their ability to pay, should have access to compassionate, high-quality healthcare. Providing this care during the current global pandemic is vitally important in the worldwide quest to curb the infection rate of this virus.”
