Two walk-up COVID-19 testing sites will open next week in Collier and Glades counties.

In Naples, tests will be at North Collier Regional Park, 15000 Livingston Rd., on Tuesday, May 19, and Wednesday, May 20, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The second testing site in Naples will be at the South Regional Library, 8065 Lely Cultural
Pkwy., on Friday, May 22, and Saturday, May 23, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tests are free and no referral is needed. You will be asked to provide your name, contact phone number, and address.

In Glades County, free drive-thru testing will be provided by appointment only in Moore Haven starting Wednesday, May 20.

Testing will run Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Glades County Health Department, 1021 Health Park Dr.

Appointments can be made by calling the Glades County Health Department at 863-946-0707.

There is no criteria for testing; however, individuals must be 18 years and older. Testing activities will continue as long as supplies last. Appointments will not be made more than one week in advance. Antibody testing will not be available.

This is a “drive-thru” service. All individuals must stay in their vehicles during the process (during registration and while being tested). At the time of testing, instructions will be given on how to receive test results. Results may take 3 to 5 business days.
