Fever, cough, shortness of breath? If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 also known as
the Coronavirus, drive-through screening and testing for community members is available one-day a week on
Tuesdays. The previously offered Thursday screening and testing has been cancelled due to a reduced need.
Please note: The Drive-Through site will be open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the parking lot of Central
Louisiana Technical College (CLTCC) at 6587 Highway 1 in Natchitoches.
Professionals from Natchitoches Regional Medical Center will be conducting the screenings and testing.
Community members who have been exposed to the virus or who believe they may have symptoms will be asked to
remain in their cars as they receive screening. If after the screening, the professionals recommend testing, the
NRMC Associates will do so at a testing station as part of the drive-through process, and test results will be
available in approximately 4 days.
All participants must bring a valid photo ID and their insurance card. All insurances including Medicaid, Medicare,
and commercial insurance are accepted.
