More than 100,000 people have now received coronavirus tests at the walk-up site on FAMU's campus.

The Bragg Memorial Stadium coronavirus testing site has been open since April 25. In a statement, Florida A&M University President Larry Robinson says he's proud of the school's involvement as a host of the site.

"It symbolizes our desire to stand and fight with our community during these difficult times," Robinson says.

The site offers PCR and rapid antigen tests. Priority for PRC tests go to people who need to travel, have orders from a physician to get one, and have had a negative rapid test but are still symptomatic.
