Region 5 OPH Extends Mobile COVID-19 Testing Hours With Quicker Results

From the Louisiana Department of Health newsroom:

Throughout this week, mobile testing sites in southwest Louisiana have extended their hours and will be open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. from Monday, July 13 to Friday, July 17.

These sites will also be using the laboratory eTrueNorth to conduct the tests and provide results. Pre-registration is NOT required but encouraged by going to www.DoINeedaCOVID19test.com.  

Those who are pre-registered can use an express line for faster testing. On-site registration is also available, but testing will take longer than arriving with pre-registration completed.

People must provide a telephone number and email address to be tested. An ID is NOT required.

With eTrueNorth laboratory processing the tests, it is taking about 72 hours to get results. This has been the turnaround time experienced in Baton Rouge last week at the five sites using eTrueNorth.

Test results will be provided by email notification and on the eTrueNorth portal. If someone tests positive, they will also be contacted by phone. There is no phone number to call for results. Results will only be provided by email and in the portal.
