Here's where to get a COVID-19 test in Louisiana

Some residents in the Greater New Orleans area say they waited hours hoping to get tested

NEW ORLEANS — As the COVID-19 Omicron variant surges through Louisiana, the demand to get tested for the virus is also spiking.

Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

Walgreens Testing

The US Department of Health and Human Services, the Louisiana Department of Health, and Walgreens are partnered to provide COVID-19 testing by appointment at some Walgreens locations. 

LDH-Walgreens locations offer COVID-19 testing at no cost to the patient, though insurance information may be requested. You will not be billed if your insurance denies coverage.

Testing is available to people ages 3 and older. Appointments are required; make yours at walgreens.com/covid19testing. Bring your personal ID to your appointment, as well as insurance information if you have it. Test results are available within 72 hours of test collection: by email if negative, or by email, and a phone call if positive.

Community Testing Sites 

The Louisiana Department of Health has compiled a list of community testing sites across the state.
