COVID-19 Testing Information

The Baton Rouge Testing and Recruiting Center will resume testing on a limited basis beginning Wednesday, May 20, 2020. The only service that will be provided, at this time, is testing. All test scheduling will be conducted by reservation only; there will be NO walk-in testing at this time.

Additional testing sessions are being provided to accommodate smaller class sizes and in order to conduct social distancing. Tests will be given by appointment only at 8 am and 12:30 pm Monday through Friday. In order to schedule to take a test, You MUST send an email request to State Civil Service at mytest@la.gov indicating your preferred date and time.

The request for testing must include the following information:

You will then receive a confirmation email from SCS staff indicating your assigned test date and time as well as additional information regarding the correct protocol for checking in at the Testing & Recruiting Center and requirements for testing.
