Chamber partners to offer COVID testing
HAMMOND---The Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Tangipahoa Parish Government, Tangipahoa Economic Development, the Louisiana National Guard, Office of Public Health, and the Louisiana Department of Health will offer free employee testing for local businesses on Monday, June 29.
Testing will be conducted by appointment at the Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce office, which is located at 400 NW Railroad Avenue in Hammond. The site will use a self-administered nasal swab test that will allow those being tested to swab their own nose, as observed by a trained medical volunteer. Officials say that will ensure the sample is taken correctly before being prepared for further testing.
All individuals on site will be asked to wear a mask.
Registration is available online. Chamber members will receive priority appointment scheduling.
