Florida Health in Flagler Updates Testing and Vaccination Schedule for September 24 through October 1
September 23, 2021
The Florida Department of Health in Flagler County (DOH-Flagler) is sharing its modified COVID-19 testing schedule at the Flagler County Fairgrounds for September 24 through October 1. The schedule changes were made due to a slight decline in testing demand and lower positive case rates.
Students, faculty and school staff of Flagler County public or private schools do not need appointments for testing. Other residents are encouraged to schedule appointments by calling 386-437-7350 ext. 0.
Friday, September 24 8AM to 11AM
Saturday, September 25 CLOSED
Sunday, September 26 CLOSED
Monday, September 27 8AM to 10AM
Tuesday, September 28 8AM to 10AM
Wednesday, September 29 CLOSED
Thursday, September 30 8AM to 10AM
Friday, October 1 8AM to 10AM
Please consider the following when testing with DOH-Flagler.
- Testing should take place at least 3 to 5 days after exposure. Testing sooner than this may result in false negatives.
- This is NOT a drive-through test site. You will park and walk into the Cattleman’s Hall where testing takes place.
- Wear a mask inside the testing facility. Should you test positive, you may be asked to exit the facility and wait for the rest of your party outside to avoid transmission.
- A new emergency rule, 64DER21-15, introduced September 22, lays out a modified protocol in handling students who are considered close contacts of positive COVID-19 individuals. The parent or legal guardian can now allow the student to attend school, school-sponsored activities, or be on school property without restrictions, as long as the student shows no symptoms of COVID-19. The parent or legal guardian may also choose to have the student quarantined up to seven days from the date of last direct contact with a person that is positive for COVID-19. These options will be explained during the contact tracing process, as appropriate.
