City of Orlando Announces Additional New Free Mobile COVID-19 Testing Sites in Orlando Neighborhoods  

The City of Orlando will open additional new, free mobile COVID-19 drive-thru and pedestrian-accessible testing sites beginning next week. Locations for the additional mobile testing sites were selected based on data from Orlando’s data tracker (Orlando.gov/datatracker) to target locations where a higher number of positive cases has been reported. Located within city neighborhoods, sites will also provide enhanced access for pedestrians and users of other forms of mobility, like biking and public transportation.  

The mobile testing sites operate on Wednesdays, and rotate to a new location in the city on each operating day. There is no symptom criteria for testing, however, appointments are required, individuals must be 18 years or older and show a valid Orlando or Orange County ID.  

Orlando and Orange County residents can make an appointment by visiting orlando.gov/covid19testing.  

COVID-19 Testing Site Details:  

  • Testing will be done with no out-of-pocket cost to the Orlando resident.  

  • The site will use a nasal swab test that will allow medical first responders from the Orlando Fire Department to administer the test while individuals remain in their vehicles.  

  • GENETWORx will handle processing test samples and communicating results to those tested and applicable departments of health. Results are typically provided after five days. 

  • If you don't get a call within seven days in regards to your test, please contact the GENETWORx Lab at 850.583.2419.  

  • While individuals who are tested are awaiting results, please follow CDC guidelines and take steps to help prevent the virus from spreading to people in your home and community.  

  • Please note, testing is not available inside Neighborhood and Community Centers.
