People in the Mamou area who feel the need to be screened and tested for the COVID-19 virus can now do so at a facility in their hometown beginning today. Testing and screening for the coronavirus will be done between 10 am and Noon today at Savoy Medical Center.

In order for a person to be tested for the virus, they must first undergo a screening process. That screening process will be done by a series of questions concerning symptoms, travel, exposure to sick individuals, and that individual's personal risk as it relates to the virus.

If you're interested in going through the screening and testing process in Mamou you will need to dial (337) 468-0572. The screening criteria will be discussed with you there. Should it be determined that you or your loved one needs to be tested you will receive instructions on what to do next at that time.  You are also encouraged to bring a valid photo ID and an insurance card.
