The Louisiana Department of Health recommends COVID-19 testing for any patients who are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath. If you have these symptoms, contact your primary care physician for guidance.
With the number of places provided COVID-19 tests increasing each week, people are having to wait longer for their results. Currently, some commercial labs that process the tests can take up to two weeks to report those results back to the patient.
The Department of Health does not get any test results, and we recommend that patients who get tested ask staff at the testing site when to expect results, and where to call to get those results. We recommend everyone ask for a phone number to call if you haven’t received your results within the time frame you were given.
