WATCH: Police Jury discusses COVID-19 mobile testing in Ouachita Parish


OUACHITA PARISH, La. — The Ouachita Parish Police Jury held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to discuss COVID-19 mobile testing within the parish.

According to Ouachita Parish Police Jury President Shane Smiley, one mobile testing unit will be stationed in Ouachita Parish and will be conducting free self-tests between May 18th and June 12th from 8 AM to 11 AM each day. Medics with the National Guard will be on hand to help patients with the self-tests.

Smiley does say that there will only be 50 tests per day, so it will be on a first come first served basis.

Over the next few weeks, more announcements concerning specific locations and dates will be released.
