Free COVID-19 testing will take place in east Gainesville from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday at Springhill Baptist Church for those who choose to drive- or walk-up.


The free testing will be provided by Florida Health Alachua County in conjunction with COVID-19 Student Service Corps. No physician orders or symptoms will be required for the testing that will be on a first-come first-served basis for the 100 tests that will be available.


Testing had been scheduled for a different location, but was switched Wednesday at Springhille Baptist Church, 120 SE Willison Road.


If demand exceeds 100 tests, additional testing days will be scheduled.
