COVID-19 testing has been canceled at state-supported sites in Collier County, with the exception of one date.

The Florida Department of Health in Collier County says testing will be held Thursday, Jan. 7, at the North Collier Regional Park Soccer Fields, 15000 Livingston Rd., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All other testing for the week is canceled due to the department’s vaccination efforts. They will begin administering the vaccine Sunday to frontline health care workers and people aged 65 and older.

Thursday’s COVID-19 test site is a drive-thru and is free.

The DOH-Collier call center will remain open Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The call center can be reached at 239-252-6220.
