July COVID-19 Updates 

Due to the tremendous turnout of nearly 600 residents for the #COVID19 testing in Belle Chasse the last two weeks, testing will return to the Belle Chasse Auditorium on the following days:

Tuesday, July 7th, 8 AM-11:30 AM
Wednesday, July 8th, 8 AM-11:30 AM
Thursday, July 9th, 8 AM-11:30 AM

We want to remind residents that the lab results are currently taking between 10-15 days.  This is caused by the increasing number of tests that are occurring nationwide.  Under normal conditions, the contracted lab can handle 110,000 cases per day but they are receiving 200,000 cases per day.

Please remember to take necessary precautions if you are in public especially if you have any underlying health conditions.  As always, stay home if you are sick, wash or sanitize your hands regularly and practice social distancing.
