TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida A&M University Bragg Memorial Stadium Community COVID-19 Test site will now request health insurance information or a driver’s license when registering online with Curative, the state vendor.

This a new state directive; however, testing remains free and those seeking to get tested will not be charged.

The site is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Although walk-ups are accepted, pre-registration is recommended by going to the state vendor’s website, available by clicking here.

At the site, the rapid COVID-19 antigen test sample is collected by a health care worker who will gently swab the inside of a patient’s nostrils. Results are texted to patients within minutes. PCR tests are available upon request.

As of Feb. 2, the site has conducted 230,307 tests.

The Florida Division of Emergency Management oversees operations at the community-based site in partnership with FAMU, Bond Community Health Center and the Florida Department of Health-Leon County.
