LCMC Health, the City of New Orleans’ Health Department, and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) will continue conducting a mobile testing campaign for COVID-19 across the metro area over the coming weeks.

Testing will be from 8 am-3 pm each day, or until the allotted 250 tests have been taken. Times subject to change due to weather conditions.
