ST. TAMMANY PARISH – In Partnership with the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health and the Louisiana National Guard, free COVID-19 testing will be available to St. Tammany Parish residents.

 To be tested, residents must be at least 18 years old and have a valid Louisiana ID.

The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose onsite while in their vehicles, observed by a trained medical volunteer to ensure the sample is taken correctly, and drop the sealed sample into a container on their way out of the drive-thru site.

Those being tested will need to wear a mask and stay in their cars for verification of eligibility criteria, ID check and self-administered test. Walk up testing is not preferred due to safety concerns.

Each of the following testing sites will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 11 a.m.
