In Partnership with the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health and the Louisiana National Guard, free COVID-19 testing will be available next week for Tangipahoa citizens at the following sites below from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Those wishing to be tested are encouraged to pre-register at http://health.questdiagnostics.com/STLOU. The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose onsite which will be observed by a trained medical volunteer to ensure the sample is taken correctly. The sample will then be dropped into a sealed sample at the site. Those being tested will need to wear a mask and socially distant at the test site. Test results will be sent through the secure MyQuest online portal or app or go to MyQuest.QuestDiagnostics.com.
Through Wednesday testing will be done at the Tangipahoa OPH Clinic at 15481 W Club Deluxe Road. On Thursday and Friday testing will be at the Tangipahoa OPH Clinic at 330 W Oak Street in Amite.
