Ochsner Health Holds Community COVID-19 Testing this Week

Ochsner Health has announced community COVID-19 testing locations in the greater New Orleans and Northshore regions the week of June 29. Testing is open to Louisiana residents, age two and older.

Members of the community who wish to be tested should bring an 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 is available at the times listed on the website listed below, or until all test kits have been utilized.

Community members will receive their test results 72 hours via the MyChart patient portal or by phone. Those who test positive will have the opportunity to participate in Ochsner’s 14-day symptom tracker program designed for COVID-19 patients who do not require hospital care. Participants receive daily text messages to monitor symptoms and can be connected to our 24/7 nurse on-call line for additional support.
