BATON ROUGE - COVID tests are sought-after by many people as the Omicron variant spreads ahead of the holidays.

The Louisiana Department of Health tracks testing sites online here.

Tuesday, Ochsner outlined the holiday schedule for its testing centers.  

Services for both children and adults have no out-of-pocket cost, the hospital system said. 

Ochsner’s main testing and vaccination site is the former Runnels School at 17255 S. Harrell’s Ferry Road in Baton Rouge.  Medical experts perform a COVID-19 PCR test for people 2 and older.  Appointments are not required but preferred by calling (844) 888-2772 or visiting MyOchsner.org. Walk-ins are accommodated as supplies last.
