Testing is available Monday - Saturday from 10am to 6pm.

The testing utilizes a rapid point-of-care test with results returned in 15 - 20 minutes. Testing is free and no ID, legal status, or medical insurance is required. Drive-up and walk-ups are welcome and the test site is accessible by public transit.
