Manatee County to open new COVID-19 testing site
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.
