Sarasota Health Department Will Conduct COVID-19 Testing in Englewood Next Wednesday
The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota (DOH Sarasota) is scheduled to host a by-appointment COVID-19 drive-thru testing site at the Englewood Sports Complex next Wednesday, June 17. This community-based testing is for anyone who is currently experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell) or who works in a health care setting. To be evaluated and to make an appointment, call (941) 861-2883, Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Callers will be screened using current CDC testing criteria. Appointments are limited; however, more testing opportunities may be scheduled in the future. Additionally, while these are primarily drive-thru sites, DOH Sarasota can accommodate walk-ups, and people on bicycles.
