Free, walk-up COVID-19 testing at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette for students and faculty and staff members is again available this semester.

Testing is conducted at an area along St. Mary Boulevard outside Edith Garland Dupré Library. Hours and days are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

UL Lafayette, the Louisiana Department of Health, and the Louisiana National Guard established a testing site on campus last semester. Testing was previously held in the green space near the Student Union and Cypress Lake Plaza.

Testing guidelines, including the current registration process, are below.

  •     No ID is needed for testing, but registration is required.
  •     Pre-registration can be completed at Health.QuestDiagnostics.com/STLOU
  •     People will be allowed to register at the site, but can expect longer waits.
  •     Attendees must provide a phone number and email address.

Employees who visit the testing site must complete the Daily Self-Check questionnaire before they arrive on campus. Health care personnel, and faculty and staff members who work in a health care setting, must complete the HCP self-check questionnaire before they arrive on campus.

People experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or who are under quarantine will be permitted to visit campus for testing purposes only. Quarantined or symptomatic student residents will be required to return to their assigned housing immediately after testing. All others under quarantine or experiencing symptoms will be required to leave campus immediately after testing.

Symptomatic students are reminded to complete the COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine Form when told to quarantine or isolate because of exposure to COVID-19, or if they are presumed positive because of symptoms and testing.

As in all places on campus, masks are required at the testing site. Signs will mark where visitors to the testing tent should stand to ensure social distancing.

Those being tested will perform nasal swabs on themselves. The process will be observed to ensure it is done correctly. Sealed samples will be dropped in a container.

  • Test results are available by phone at (866) 697-8378 or via a secure online portal or app. Sign up at MyQuest.QuestDiagnostics.com, or download the MyQuest app.

For more information about the testing site process, contact the LDH Region 4 Office of Public Health at (337) 262-5311.
