The COVID-19 testing locations operated by Adult Medicine of Lake County in Mount Dora and Leesburg will merge into one site at Lake County Fairgrounds. Testing will be available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and the site is open to both residents and non-residents of Lake County. The subsidized test price of $20 for Lake County residents has been discontinued. The new cost for the FDA-approved swab or antibody tests is $85. No symptoms or appointments are required at the Fairgrounds which is located at 2101 N. County Road 452 in Eustis.
“The data gathered is helping us to identify people needing treatment and isolation, as well as supporting the reopening of our local economy,” said Lake County Commission Chairwoman Leslie Campione.
In addition to testing performed by local physicians and labs, free testing is available to Lake County residents that are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Those tests are available by appointment at Florida Department of Health and without an appointment at the Orange County Convention Center.
Residents with symptoms who are unable to receive testing through their primary healthcare provider should call the Florida Department of Health Hotline at 352-742-4830. Callers who meet the criteria for testing will receive an appointment for free testing at a Lake County testing location. Residents can also call the Lake County's Citizens Information Line at 352-253-9999.
