DPH closing all remaining COVID-19 test sites in Georgia

-Georgia Department of Public Health-

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is closing all remaining COVID-19 community testing sites at the end of June.

The only one currently remaining open in Northwest Georgia is in Rome, Floyd County, at the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds, and it will close June 30. 

COVID-19 testing kiosks are now located throughout the state. In most locations, these kiosks offer access to COVID-19 tests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The only COVID-19 testing kiosk in Northwest Georgia is located at AdventHealth Gordon at 1035 Red Bud Road in Calhoun.

The kiosks dispense a test kit that includes two (2) nasal swabs for COVID-19 and Influenza A/Influenza B and instructions on collecting the specimen. Once collected, the specimens can be safely packaged back into the kit and placed in the kiosk. The specimens are picked up daily and sent to an accredited lab for PCR testing. In most cases, individuals receive notification of their test results by email or text within 48 hours of specimen collection. 

Pre-registration for testing at the kiosks is not required but is available at There is no out-of-pocket cost for tests provided through a DPH kiosk, but for those individuals with insurance, their insurance will be billed for the test.

A map of kiosk locations and a short video about using the kiosks can be found at

Free test kits are also available statewide at county health departments.
