If you want to get tested for COVID-19 at CenturyLink Sports Complex, here’s what you need to know
The COVID-19 test site at CenturyLink Sports Complex in south Fort Myers has opened for a third day. If you feel like you need to be tested, here’s what you should know before heading out.
This test site is for COVID-19 virus; it is not a testing site for antibodies. This site is for those who want to know if they currently have COVID-19.
- Testing for ages 18 and up ONLY. For children under 18, contact your health care provider.
- It is a two-hour wait from the gate. Wait times are significantly less by mid-morning. At noon Wednesday, the wait time was just 45 minutes.
- You must bring a valid photo ID for everyone being tested.
- Bring a face-covering/mask; you must cover your mouth for the nasal swab.
- Stay in your vehicles at all times.
- Keep your windows closed until given direction to open for the nasal swab.
- Your vehicle must have working windows that can be lowered for testing; doors must stay closed at all times.
- Make sure your vehicle has enough fuel to last the entire time and plan accordingly.
- Bring your own water, snacks, and any medication that you will need, especially if you have any medical condition that requires you to eat.
- The testing site opens at 9 a.m. sharp, please do not line up cars outside the gate.
- Be patient, be kind: The people who choose to be tested are people who believe they might have the COVID virus, so keeping the workers safe is important.
The testing site at 14100 6 Mile Cypress Pkwy, Fort Myers, FL 33912, will remain open, seven days a week from 9 a.m. until gates close at 3 p.m., until further notice. The goal is to fill the needs of the community.
