FAMU COVID-19 Testing Site Increases Patient Capacity
The COVID-19 testing site at Florida A & M University will be increasing its testing capacity from 200 to 300 tests a day. These tests take place in the parking lot of Bragg Memorial Stadium. Appointments will also be extended to 3 p.m. daily.
In a statement, FAMU says the expansion is due to high demand. The site has been reaching max capacity as early as 2 p.m. Workers will continue to test people until at least May 8.
To set an appointment, residents can call the Leon County Health Department at 850-404-6399. Alternatively, people can also walk up to the site. Testing is free.
The FAMU site is one of several in minority communities across the state.
