Ochsner Health has announced a community COVID-19 testing location on the Northshore for this week. 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 until all test kits have been utilized starting Tuesday, June 30 – Thursday, July 2, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Church of the King on Little Creek Rd. in Mandeville.
Community members will receive their test results in 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 a 24/7 nurse on-call line for additional support.
