Third Orange County COVID-19 testing site opens in Apopka

Orange County Health Services will open a third drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at the old Clarcona Elementary School location in Apopka. This new testing site will join Orange County’s two other testing sites at Barnett Park and the Econ Soccer Complex. All three testing sites will be open through the end of the month, at which time the County will evaluate if the sites need to remain open.

Orange County’s testing sites operate seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. However, it is important for residents to know that due to the rising demand from residents wanting to be tested, sites may close earlier than 5 p.m. Residents interested in getting a COVID-19 test are urged to arrive early to ensure they can be accommodated before the sites close.
