FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – Flagler County Emergency Management reminds residents that testing options are increasing locally -- AdventHealth opened a test site Friday at the Daytona International Speedway -- but those seeking tests will be required to meet criteria for COVID-19 testing.

“We now have multiple options for COVID-19 testing in our area,” said Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord. “We are fortunate to have these options for our residents.”

Here are the current local options for Flagler County residents:

  • Residents should call their primary healthcare providers, as they can provide guidance and can likely conduct the necessary swabbing and test lab submittal. Even if they cannot do the swabbing themselves, they may have access to other local testing resources.
  • Visit the AdventHealth drive-up testing site, for a no out of pocket cost, at the Daytona International Speedway. Hours of operation are M-F 9a-4p, and S-S 9a-1p. Please visit AdventHealthCoronaVirusTesting.com for specific details.
  • Call the Florida Department of Health – Flagler at 386-437-7350, they offer no-cost testing at their Bunnell location.
  • Call an Urgent Care Center. As with a primary healthcare provider’s office, call the location before arriving, as availability and criteria varies.
