Coronavirus testing

CROWLEY, La., (KLFY) — Three free drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites will be set up in Crowley next week, according to Mayor Tim Monceaux.

The testing sites are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at:

  • Monday, July 13 and Wednesday, July 15: Acadia Rice Arena, 159 Cherokee Dr.
  • Saturday, July 18: Love of Christ Baptist Church, 1120 W. Hutchinson Ave.

Testing Information:

  • No ID is needed for testing, but registration is required.
  • Pre-registration is strongly encouraged and should be completed at www.DoINeedaCOVID19test.com. Under Test Locations, click “Louisiana” and choose the testing site and day that you plan to attend.
  • People will be allowed to register at the site but can expect longer waits.
  • Testing will be available for any Louisiana resident at least 5 years old. Guardians must accompany anyone under 16.
  • People must provide a phone number and email address.
  • This mobile test site is part of the federal government’s effort to support communities that have been identified as COVID-19 hotspots, or communities where there has been a recent and intense level of new cases and hospitalizations related to the ongoing outbreak.
  • Testing is open to everyone.
  • You do not need to be a resident of Acadia Parish to be tested.
  • The testing site will be conducted as a drive-thru test site. Once on-site, those being tested will need to wear a mask and stay in their cars. There will be separate lines for those who have pre-registered and for those who must register on-site.
  • The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose on-site while in their vehicles. This will be observed by trained personnel to ensure the sample is taken correctly, and drop the sealed sample into a container on their way out of the drive-thru site.

How will results be obtained?

  • Results will be emailed and posted online at  www.DoINeedaCOVID19test.com.
  • It is expected to take three to five days to get test results.
  • People who test positive will also be contacted by phone. There is no phone number for people to call to get their results.
