Rapides Regional Medical Center reports they have been notified by the Louisiana Department of Health they have a patient in their facility who has presumptively tested positive for COVID-19.

The hospital has protocols are in place to care for patients with infectious diseases, and they are following CDC guidelines related to COVID-19 cases. This includes isolating the patient and taking steps to ensure the safety of patients, employees and physicians.

For the last month, Rapides has been preparing for the COVID-19 pandemic and has implemented mandatory screenings at consolidated access points to our facilities and implemented a no visitation policy for our campus.
