DRIVE-THROUGH COVID TESTING BEGINS TUESDAY AT MORGAN CITY WALMART

A COVID-19 drive-through testing site will open on Tuesday, June 23, at the drive-through pharmacy
window of the Walmart Neighborhood Market, 1002 La. 70, Morgan City.

The site is supported by Walmart, Quest Diagnostics, and state and local officials. Testing is available
for adults who meets Centers for Disease Control and state and local guidelines on who should be
tested, including first responders, health care providers and others with symptoms of COVID-19.
Please note, testing is not available inside Walmart stores.

"Walmart is part of the community, and we are proud to help support the expansion of COVID-19
testing in Morgan City during this time," said Tice White, Walmart public affairs director for Louisiana.
"We are grateful to our pharmacists and associates who are supporting these testing sites, and to
Quest Diagnostics and local officials as we work together to open the site and help our community."

Details regarding the testing site:
—Located at the Walmart Neighborhood Market pharmacy drive-through window at 1002 La., 70,

—Testing is for adults who meet CDC and state and local guidelines on who should be tested, including

—Once on site, those being tested will need to wear a mask and stay in their cars for verification of
eligibility criteria, ID check and self-administered test. For the safety of all those on-site, the test
