Last week, I advised that working with Parish Government and the Louisiana Department of Health, Lafayette General Health has agreed to offer testing in St. Martin Parish. The testing shall commence this week and will last through the month of June. The following are the scheduled dates, times, and locations:

Testing Sites

Testing is VOLUNTARY and will be available to ANYONE, even those who may be asymptomatic. Members of the community need only bring a valid ID and insurance card if they have one. There will be no out of pocket costs for those seeking to be tested. Lafayette General Health has declared that no one will be refused a test based upon their insurance status.

Also, the testing will be conducted in a drive-thru setting. Hence, everyone should remain in their vehicles. Further, there should be no more than four persons per vehicle.

Test results will be provided within 24-72 hours via the MyHealth patient portal. Those testing positive will be contacted by telephone.
