Ochsner Health has announced drive-thru community COVID-19 testing at the Houma -Terrebonne Civic Center, Friday, July 24, 2020, from 9AM to 4PM or until all test kits have been utilized. Testing is available to those age 10 and older who wish to know their COVID-19 status.
Members of the community who wish to be tested should bring an ID and insurance card, if applicable. There are no out-of-pocket costs for those seeking a test and no one will be turned away based on their insurance status.
