The City of Newberry and the Alachua County Health Department have partnered to offer a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at the Newberry Fire Station (310 N W 250 Dr, Newberry, FL 32669) on Wednesday, May 27th from 9 am to 12 pm.
The Alachua County Health Department is offering COVID-19 testing to Alachua County residents, regardless of symptoms, by appointment only. Residents who want a COVID-19 test are asked to call 352-258-3278 for an appointment. Appointments must be made by 5pm on Thursday, May 21st.
A referral from a doctor is not required. If your insurance covers this, it will be billed and no copay is required. If not, it is free. Please have your insurance information ready when you call. We expect an initial surge of calls. You may have to call back.
The local Department of Health is not offering an Antibody Test. Please do not call to inquire about that as it is tying up the phone line. We want people who wish to be tested to get through to set up an appointment.
