Free drive-up COVID-19 tests will be available Saturday on Marco Island.

The city said it’s collaborating with the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida to provide the testing at Veterans Community Park, 901 Park Ave., from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on July 11.

Testing will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for up to 250 people regardless of symptoms. A physician referral is not required and those receiving tests do not need to be patients of Healthcare Network. To ensure proper follow-up, a photo ID is required. Test results are expected in 3-5 business days.

This is a drive-up testing site, so drivers and passengers must remain in their vehicles at all
times. Walk-ups and cyclists will not be accommodated at this testing location. For
more information, go to or call 239-658-3000.
