BR Mayor urges residents to get tested at one of the city's five free COVID testing sites
BATON ROUGE - East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is encouraging members of the public to take advantage of her "Geaux Get Tested" initiative by getting tested for COVID-19 at one of the five drive-thru testing sites she and collaborators have set up across the Parish.
Monday afternoon, the mayor's office issued a reminder regarding the testing locations, stating, "Free COVID Tests will continue at the five main sites while supplies last."
All of the locations operate seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. ( with the exception of the Healing Place Church site, which is closed on Sundays).
The five sites are:
-Healing Place Church (closed Sundays)
-LSU (Alex Box Stadium)
-Southern University (FG Clark)
-Lamar Dixon Expo
The Mayor's office says though residents can simply show up at any of the above sites for a test, it is encouraged that all who are able pre-register at www.DoINeedaCovid19Test.com
At the testing sites, residents should be prepared to give medical personnel their phone number and email address.
