The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Bragg Memorial Stadium COVID-19 Test Site will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., effective Monday, December 14.
The change is part of the state of Florida’s effort to bring all community-based test sites into uniformity with an eight-hour workday. Individuals should be prepared for long wait times, even if they are pre-registered. Those with registration times later in the afternoon are encouraged to arrive early to ensure there is enough time to receive a test. The site is open from Monday through Saturday, unless closed due to inclement weather.
Testing is free and no physician referral or insurance is required. Although walk-ups are accepted, pre-registration is recommended by going to the state vendor’s website https://curative.com.
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 also available upon request.
Since it opened on April 25, the site has conducted more than 124,000 tests. The staff is averaging 1,691 tests each day since Thanksgiving.
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.
For inquiries about their results, patients can contact the Curative support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org and 888-702-9042.
