Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced that the city’s COVID-19 community testing site, located at Baton Rouge General’s Mid City facility, resumed testing Wednesday.
The site will remain open, while supplies last, Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m., according to the city government’s chief communications officer, Mark Armstrong.
Before someone can receive a test at the site, their physician must first fax an order for the test to the site. Written orders are not accepted.
The site is an initiative of Broome’s office and local physicians, and local hospitals and clinics provided the tests and the doctors administering them.
A total of 904 people received COVID-19 tests at the site since it opened on Monday, March 16, according to Armstrong.
