Ochsner Health is providing community COVID-19 testing at the Sorrento Civic Center today until 5 p.m. and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or until all kits have been used.
Testing is open to all Louisiana residents ages 2 and older. A doctor’s order is not required. New patients are welcome. There are no out-of-pocket costs, and no one will be turned away based on their insurance status. Anyone wanting to be tested should bring a picture ID and an insurance card, if applicable.
Results will be available within 24 to 72 hours after testing via the Ochsner MyChart patient portal or by phone. Those testing positive will have the opportunity to participate in Ochsner’s 14-day symptom tracker. A 24/7 nurse on-call support line also is available.
