Two COVID mega-testing sites open in metro Atlanta

The sites will be open Monday through Saturday.

ATLANTA — Georgia's Department of Public Health said Friday that as the Omicron surge strains testing resources, two "mega-testing" sites are now open in metro Atlanta.

DPH said in a release it is partnering with the public health agencies in DeKalb County and Cobb County, as well as testing company Viral Solutions, to open the sites.

The tests will be free to all Georgia residents, though insurance will be billed if you have it. DPH indicated more sites such as these two could soon also open, saying in the release that, "DPH will send new updates as new sites are established."

"DPH extends its gratitude to Cobb County and the City of Stonecrest for working with our health districts and Viral Solutions to open these COVID-19 mega-testing locations; and to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for providing security and traffic control. DPH is in ongoing discussions to identify and stand up additional sites to give Georgians more options when seeking COVID-19 testing," the agency said.
