Florida Health in Flagler Relocates Testing Operations to Flagler County Fairgrounds
August 19, 2021
The Florida Department of Health in Flagler County (DOH-Flagler) is moving its COVID-19 testing operations to the Flagler County Fairgrounds, 150 Sawgrass Rd. in Bunnell. The site will be open weekdays between 8AM and 12 noon to accommodate testing for:
- Students, faculty and school staff. No appointments are necessary.
- The general public (those not employed by or attending local schools) by appointment only. Reservations can be made by calling 386-437-7350 ext. 0.
The last day of testing at 120 Airport Road is August 20.
Several factors influenced the decision for earlier testing hours and the return to Cattleman’s Hall, including afternoon heat, increased demand for testing and adjustments requested by the department’s case investigation and contact tracing team.
The testing schedule for August 21 through August 29 follows:
Saturday, August 21
& Sunday, August 22 3 to 5PM 301 Dr. Carter Blvd in Bunnell.
Monday, August 23 8AM to 12 noon Flagler County Fairgrounds

(*One week only, due to previously scheduled event at Fairgrounds)
As a reminder, the health department does not offer testing for travel verification.
