A mobile drive-by testing site for COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, 2020.

St. Johns County is launching a new COVID-19 testing site next week that will be open every day.

Starting Monday, Aug. 16, the new testing site will operate at the St. Johns Agricultural Center from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for seven days a week.

St. Johns is opening the site in collaboration with Nomi Health, a direct healthcare company that has operated hundreds of mobile COVID-19 vaccination and testing sites for rural counties, prisons, senior centers and truck stops around the country.

The testing site is located at 3111 Agricultural Center Dr. and doesn’t require an appointment.

However, pre-registration online here, can speed up the process.
