Both PCR and antigen tests are available 7 days a week from 9 until 5 pm at Barnett Park.
COVID-19 testing ends at 5 pm daily and the site may close early when maximum capacity is reached or if wait times get long.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings says that’s why it’s imperative that residents get to the site early.
“We’re still asking residents to get in line before noon, as the line has been closed by early afternoon to accommodate all cars and lines. We find those lines are backing up.”
Demings encouraged residents to get tested as the vaccine is not available for most age groups yet.
“While the vaccine will soon be available to select groups, free COVID-19 testing also remains a priority in our county. Our county health services site at Barnett Park will continue to offer tests, seven days per week from 9 am to 5 pm through January 30.”
