A new COVID-19 test center is open in Tallahassee. Run by CDR Health, it offers coronavirus diagnostic and antibody tests. CDR Health CEO Tina Vidal-Duart says her test center will be a boon to the community.

"We're really here as a support system to all of the existing testing sites that are already happening to provide an additional outlet for people to go to when those systems get strained. And to provide a really convenient and fast and accurate way for people to get tested," Vidal-Duart says.

Vidal-Duart says a saliva COVID-19 PCR test is about $135. A rapid antigen test will be about $105. The facility is not currently accepting insurance but plans to do so in February.

The CDR Health testing center can also test people for the flu, strep throat, and more.

"We saw a real need and concern of people experiencing symptoms that are very similar to COVID and not knowing what they have and a potential public health concern of people not knowing if they have the flu or cold or COVID," Vidal-Duart says.

The testing site is located at 1981 Northeast Capital Circle. It's open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. eastern time.
