The Fulton County Board of Health recently rolled out mobile COVID-19 testing. Residents can walk up to the sites on designated days to be tested for free and without an appointment. Anyone can be tested, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.
This week, the initiative will make a stop in the City of South Fulton for the first time. COVID-19 testing will be available at Zion Hill Baptist Church, 6175 Campbellton Road, S.W., on Tuesday, May 19 and Tuesday, May 20 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
During the same hours, walk-up testing will also be available this week at multiple locations in Atlanta. The locations are: Grove Park Foundation, 1566 Donald Lee Parkway, Ste. 105 on Monday, May 18; Salem Bible Church, 2283 Baker Road on Thursday, May 21; and True Church of Living Faith, 701 Hamilton E. Holmes Drive on Friday, May 22.
The dates and locations of the walk-up testing changes from week to week. Updated information is released online and on social media as it becomes available.
Testing is also being offered at Wolf Creek Amphitheater, Greenbriar Mall, Georgia Tech and Mercedes Benz Stadium. Appointments are required for these locations. Additional information on how to secure a spot is available on the Fulton County website.
