WEBSTER PARISH, LA. (KTAL/KMSS) – A series of mobile COVID-19 testing dates set for later in June in Webster Parish have been pushed back due to the threat of Tropical Storm Cristobal.

The Louisiana National Guard was set to start testing next week in other parishes, but considering they may be needed when Tropical Storm Cristobal makes landfall, all sites have been postponed by one week.

The original series of dates started on June 25 and wrapped up on July 3. Now, the Webster Parish Office of Homeland Security says the series of dates has been pushed back to begin July 1:

  • Wednesday, July 1, 2020, at the Minden Fairgrounds, 800 Goodwill Street, Minden, LA 71055 
  • Thursday, July 2, 2020, at the N. Webster Upper Elementary School, 6245 Hwy 160, Cotton Valley, LA 71018 
  • Friday, July 3, 2020, at Springhill Medical Center, 2001 Doctors Drive, Springhill, LA 71075 

The test is on a first come first served basis and will begin at 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.

Due to the possibility of having to move them again, the second week of testing dates is yet to be determined.

Anyone who is a Louisiana resident, 18-years-old with a valid ID is welcome to get tested. There are no out of pocket costs.
