Free Covid-19 testing inside the Hester Building, at the Volusia County Fairgrounds has been extended through October 30. 


The testing site was scheduled to end this Thursday, October 15, but thanks to another extension from The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM), testing has been extended until October 30. 


Viral COVID-19 testing will still be done inside the Hester building, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. 


“We’re thrilled to have the county work so closely with the Florida Division of Emergency Management in offering this important COVID-19 testing,” said Emergency Management Director Jim Judge. “It’s easy. It’s free. And, test results are given within two to five days. This is a great service to Volusia County.”


Those who want to get tested will no longer be required to make an appointment and can be registered on-site. No symptoms are needed to get tested.


Viral testing is available for individuals five years of age and older. Adults 18 years and older are required to provide picture identification.
