ALACHUA/HIGH SPRINGS – The cities of Alachua and High Springs are partnering with the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County to provide COVID-19 testing to residents ages 10 and older.

The tests will be available by appointment only to ensure residents receive important information and to increase the speed of the testing process. The Florida Department of Health of Alachua County will administer the nasal swab test, which takes less than a minute to perform. Results are not available immediately and are typically available within 3-7 days. Residents should not bring any pets with them during testing.

While not required to receive a test, individuals with health insurance should have that information available when scheduling an appointment. There is no out of pocket cost, insured or not, for testing.
