The Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health, Pafford Medical Services and Omega Diagnostics announce that they will provide free COVID-19 PCR testing to the residents of Washington Parish at the Main Pavilion in Cassidy Park, 625 Willis Avenue, Bogalusa, Louisiana on Tuesday, January 11th through Friday, January 14th from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM each day.
Those wishing to be tested are highly encouraged to pre-register. The preregistration site is at https://omegadiagnosticslabportal.com/pre-register/WashingtonParishCommunityTesting. You can also be registered on site.
The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose which will be observed by a trained medical volunteer to ensure the sample is taken correctly. The sample will then be sealed at the site.
Those being tested will need to wear a mask and social distance at the test site. Test results will be sent to the person tested through the secure online portal or app.
