Walk-up COVID-19 testing will be available today, May 26 through Friday, May 29 at three early voting sites.
The sites are: South Fulton Service Center, 5600 Stonewall Tell Road; Sandy Springs Library, 395 Mount Vernon Hwy. N.E.; and Garden Hills Elementary School, 285 Sheridan Dr.
Testing is available from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Testing will be offered in facility parking lots and not impact early voting operations. Residents do not have to vote to receive testing, or vice versa.
The mobile walk-up testing sites are part of a recently launched effort by the Fulton County Board of Health to increase access to testing and provide greater convenience. Fulton County residents can walk up to the designated sites to be tested for free and without an appointment. Anyone can be tested, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.
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.
Among Georgia counties, Fulton County has recorded the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the state. 4,102 residents have tested positive for the virus. 790 have been hospitalized and 199 have died.
