COVID-19 COMMUNITY SCREENING AND TESTING NOW OFFERED ON TUESDAYS ONLY IN NATCHITOCHES – UPDATE

Fever, cough, shortness of breath? If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 also known as the Coronavirus, drive-through screening and testing for community members is available one-day a week on Tuesdays. The previously offered Thursday screening and testing has been cancelled due to a reduced need.

Please note: The Drive-Through site will be open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the parking lot of Central Louisiana Technical College (CLTCC) at 6587 Highway 1 in Natchitoches.

Professionals from Natchitoches Regional Medical Center will be conducting the screenings and testing.  Community members who have been exposed to the virus or who believe they may have symptoms will be asked to remain in their cars as they receive screening. If after the screening, the professionals recommend testing, the NRMC Associates will do so at a testing station as part of the drive-through process, and test results will be available in approximately 4 days.

All participants must bring a valid photo ID and their insurance card. All insurances including Medicaid,
Medicare, and commercial insurance are accepted.
