Free COVID-19 Rapid Antigen testing is now available (along with PCR testing) at the Volusia County Fairgrounds. The self-swab tests will be available to individuals of all ages. Results are expected within 15 minutes. Individuals will be encouraged to first get a rapid test, and consider a PCR test if their results are negative but they are symptomatic.
Rapid Antigen and Viral testing will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day through Oct. 30 inside the Hester building at the Volusia County Fairgrounds. Appointments are not required, but pre-registering does expedite the process; pre-register at bit.ly/C19rapidtest. There is no age requirement for self-swab PCR or rapid antigen testing. Identification is no longer required but does expedite the process. The site now requests insurance information from insured individuals, but patients will not be billed any copay or coinsurance, and those without insurance will be tested free of charge.
