WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH - Drive thru testing sites are coming to West Baton Rouge Parish this week.

Officials distributed an announcement about the new sites Monday morning, saying the locations offer free COVID-19 testing services to area residents.

The new sites are only for people in cars, so no walk-ups will be allowed and neither will anyone be allowed to exit their vehicle. Patients will administer their own tests while remaining inside of their vehicles.

A doctor's referral is not required for testing. 

However, patients must meet have either been in contact with an infected individual or be displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19 in order to be tested. 

Testing supplies are limited to about 50 kits at each site. 

Patients should keep in mind that vehicles carrying pets will not be allowed through the testing site and that only those over 18 years of age with a Louisiana ID can be tested. 

Listed below are all times and testing sites in West Baton Rouge Parish. They will be open during the listed hours as long as supplies last:
