PINELLAS COVID-19 SITE PROVIDES NO-COST, NO-APPOINTMENT TESTING
August 13, 2021
Because the number of positive COVID-19 cases continues to rise, a no-cost, no-appointment testing site opened in Pinellas on Aug. 9 to provide more access for residents.
In its first four days, the site operated by CDR Maguire provided 2,848 tests to the public. Of those, 2,364 were rapid antigen tests and 484 were PCR tests. It is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until further notice. The site is located at the Center for Health Equity, 2333 34th St. S., St. Petersburg.
Testing will be at no cost to the client, who may be asked for health insurance information. Those without health insurance will not be turned away.
For information about this CDR Maguire test site, call (800) 232-0233.
There are also CVS, Walgreens and urgent care clinics providing testing in Pinellas. They are listed on the Pinellas County site here https://covid19.pinellascounty.org/testing/ for easy reference.
DOH-Pinellas continues to encourage everyone who has not received a COVID-19 vaccination to get protected as soon as possible. Vaccination remains the most effective defense against COVID-19.
Vaccines are provided at no cost in many places in Pinellas without an appointment or a wait.
