With the spike in hospitalizations and fatalities related to the coronavirus, the City of Tampa is reopening two testing sites to help slow the spread of COVID-19. You do not need to have health insurance and there is no charge to get tested. Nor do you need to schedule an appointment.
The newest location is at Al Barnes Park at 3101 East 21st Avenue in Tampa. They use both PCR & Rapid Antiden tests. This is a drive-thru site open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm. If you’d like to pre-register, it might shorten your wait time. Head to: http://impacthealth.com/cityoftampa/
Testing also continues at Al Lopez Park in the Cordelia B. Hunt Community Center at 4602 North Himes Avenue in Tampa. This location is also open 9am to 5pm all week.
