Urgent Care Update:
Ochsner urgent care offers immediate and convenient care. One should visit an urgent care for non-emergency illnesses and injuries that could be treated by your primary care provider, but you need care after hours or can’t wait for an appointment. Ochsner urgent care physicians and staff treat patients six months and older on a walk-in basis.
COVID-19 Update: Please do not visit urgent care unless you need immediate attention. Our urgent care clinics are seeing record volume with long wait times. People use urgent care centers for high fevers, accidents, falls, injuries like cuts, minor breaks, sprains and strains, and other illnesses. As a community we need to ensure people who need Ochsner’s care can receive it. Please use at-home tests or community testing sites to seek COVID-19 tests, for travel and exposure testing, and the COVID-19 Self Care and Symptom Monitoring Program if possible. A positive at-home test does not need to be confirmed in an Ochsner urgent care.
Per CDC & LDH guidelines, Ochsner Urgent Care does not retest after isolation from a positive COVID-19 test or previously positive within 90 days.
COVID-19 testing for travel is available for cash payments. Before arriving at an Ochsner Urgent Care, please check with your airline to determine which test you will need. To find a COVID-19 Community Testing location near you, click here.
