The health department’s drive-through operation at its Bunnell headquarters prioritizes people with COVID-like symptoms and close contacts of confirmed cases. Testing appointments are required and can be made by calling 386-437-7350 ext. 0, weekdays between 8AM and 4:30PM. The department has stopped offering COVID testing for travel verification.
Through its soon-to-be-announced “Test to Return” school testing option, the health department will also offer testing and vaccinations for students, faculty and staff seven days a week. Details will be shared with the school community on Monday, August 9.
Robert Snyder, health officer for DOH-Flagler, said, “The Delta Variant is highly contagious, which supports why Flagler County has reported more than 600 positive cases each week for the past two weeks. Please get vaccinated, not for yourself, but for your family, your neighbors and others in our community who cannot get vaccinated. Wear a mask when indoors or large group settings, wash your hands and social distance whenever possible. This is our shot, Flagler. Stay safe.”
