(Gainesville)- District 2 Public Health has announced they are partnering with Mako Medical and LTS Labs to provide FREE COVID-19 drive-thru testing at the Community Market in Clayton, Stephens County Hospital and Habersham Hospital. 

 If an individual needs a COVID-19 test for work or school, or if they are feeling ill and would like to be tested for COVID-19 in Union County, the lab will offer PCR tests. These are not rapid tests and it will take 36 to 48 hours for results.

 Testing is now available in Rabun County at the Community Market every Tuesday and Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm.  

Beginning Thursday, January 13 the Habersham Hospital testing site will open at 541 Historic Hwy 441N, Demorest. Testing will be available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Beginning Friday the Stephens County Hospital testing site will open at 163 Hospital Road, Toccoa, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm 

While no appointment is required, registration with Mako Medical and LTS Labs is encouraged to decrease wait times at the testing site.
