SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Do you know whether you have COVID-19? This is your opportunity to find out.
For three days, testing for coronavirus is being made available for free to anyone age 2 or older regardless of what insurance they have or don’t have.
The testing appears to be geared toward those people who have not had the virus and those who have it.
“Even if you are not experiencing symptoms, it is encouraged that you get tested to know your COVID-19 status,” says a statement from Ochsner LSU Health. “This investment in enhanced community testing is a critical step toward a safe reopening.”
Just bring some type of identification card and your insurance card, if applicable, to either of the two testing sites that the hospital will be operating May 27-29 in Shreveport.
“There are no out-of-pocket costs for those seeking a test; and no one will be turned away based on their insurance status.”
The testing sites that will be open Wednesday through Friday are at:
- Bill Cockrell Park Community, 4109 Pines Road; and,
- Peaceful Rest Baptist Church, 8200 St. Vincent Ave.
The free testing will be available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day or until all the test kits have been used.
