Ochsner Health in Partnership with the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health and the Louisiana National Guard, COVID-19 testing will be available to Tangipahoa Parish residents. The location will be at Chappapeela Sports Park, from Tuesday, August 18, until Friday August 21. The scheduled times are 9am until 4pm unless 150 tests are expended prior to that time.
There are no out-of-pocket costs for those seeking a test at community testing sites and no one will be turned away based on their insurance status. Please bring your ID and insurance card, if applicable. Anyone Louisiana resident over the age of five is eligible to be tested. The test will be administered by Ochsner personnel. Persons being tested will be registered by personnel on site. You will receive your test results within 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. You may call 1-866-703-7790.
