Statement from Mayor Broome about COVID-19 Tests


Baton Rouge, LA – March 17, 2020 – Demand for testing at the Mayor’s Officer of Homeland Security Mid City Community Testing Site has now exceeded the supply of testing kits, and they are no longer accepting patients today.


Referred patients have been advised to contact their provider for further instructions. Within the first two days, nearly 400 patients have been tested for COVID-19. More information is forthcoming. If you are experiencing symptoms, please self-isolate and call your physician or 211. We are working diligently to bring more test kits into our community.
