Ascension offers free COVID testing throughout parish

Local News

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- Ascension Parish President Clint Cointment announced to bring free COVID-19 testing to more residents in Ascension Parish.

The testing will be held at multiple parish parks.

“The previous testing site at Lamar-Dixon was not as convenient for many of our citizens,” said
President Cointment. ‘We feel by going out to the parks which are more accessible to
residential areas, we can reach more people in our efforts to get this pandemic behind us.”

The Ascension Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security has
coordinated with the Louisiana National Guard to administer the free tests according to the
following schedule:

• Tuesday March 9 through Friday March 12 – Stevens Park, 43230 Cannon Road, St.
Amant, LA, 9:00am–3:00pm.
• Monday March 15 through Friday March 19 – Frank Sotile Pavilion, 2162 Thibaut Dr.

Road, Geismar, 9:00am-4:00pm
• Monday March 29 through Thursday April 1 – Dutchtown Library, 13278 LA Hwy 73
