Wednesday was the last day COVID-19 that tests were offered at Jacksonville’s Prime Osborn Convention Center.

The drive-thru test site at the convention center opened March 20 as the first large-scale site in Northeast Florida.

Since then, dozens of both public and private test facilities have popped-up — screening more than 43,000 residents for the virus so far, according to city officials.

As the Prime Osborn site closes the city plans to open more COVID-19 testing locations throughout Jacksonville.

The list of testing locations is available on the WJCT coronavirus Q & A page.
