People are lining up for hours to get tested for the coronavirus outside CenturyLink sports complex, but instead of waiting in those long lines, there are much quicker ways to get it done.

Here are the locations where you don’t need a referral from your doctor.
-Walmart on Colonial in Fort Myers
-Walmart on Pine Island in North Fort Myers
-CVS in Naples on Vanderbilt Beach
-MinuteClinic in Naples also on Vanderbilt Beach
– CVS in Punta Gorda on Tamiami Trail

Some locations do require a doctor’s note, those are:
-Lee Health in Cape Coral
-Lee Convenient Care at Page Field

The Immokalee testing site is still open as well but longer wait times should be expected there because like at CenturyLink, it’s first come first serve.
