The Sarasota Health Department (DOH Sarasota) will hold a by-appointment COVID-19 drive-thru testing opportunity at Heron Creek Middle School in North Port on Wednesday, July 1. DOH Sarasota is prioritizing COVID-19 testing 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, however, additional slots are available for those without current symptoms seeking a test. There will be 100 COVID-19 tests available for this one-day, four-hour testing opportunity. Appointments are required as demand for testing is high. To be evaluated and to make an appointment, call (941) 861-2883, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. While these are primarily drive-thru sites, DOH Sarasota can accommodate walk-ups, and people on bicycles.
