MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - The Florida Department of Health in Manatee County and Manatee County Government announced that they are offering an additional location for COVID-19 testing.

The new site will be at 1301 Eighth Ave. in downtown Bradenton.

This new location will begin operations at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19 and will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. It is a walk-up operation, and no appointments are necessary. Clients can pre-register online.

Visitors are asked to bring proof of Florida residency (driver’s license, utility bill with Florida address, etc.).

This site is in addition to the ongoing COVID-19 testing site at the Bradenton Area Convention Center. That location — in the southwest parking lot of 1 Haben Boulevard in Palmetto — operates 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.

Testing is free of charge in both locations.
