another round of COVID-19 testing
for North Sarasota residents from
8 a.m. to noon Tuesday, May 12

The testing event is by-appointment only for individuals currently experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, recent loss of taste or smell) or who work in a health care setting.

A state-run drive-thru testing site
is also open daily at the Mall at University Town Center.
Testing will be available for anyone over the age of 18 regardless of symptoms and
will take place seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or until daily testing capacity is reached.
