Appointments are not required at any of the three “Stop, Swab & Go” drive-thru sites but are strongly encouraged.

Each site will operate Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., Aug, 31 through Sept. 18, providing self-administered nasal swab tests. All three locations will be closed Sept. 7 in observance of the Labor Day holiday. The tests are free and no proof of health insurance or identification is required.
