As the city expands COVID-19 testing throughout Duval County, it will discontinue operations May 20 at its drive-thru testing site at the Prime Osborn Convention Center.

The city partnered with Baptist Health and Telescope Health to provide testing there. It was the first public testing site in Northeast Florida.

Telescope Health will offer virtual visits and testing orders for COVID-19 antibodies through its app. Baptist Health’s urgent care partner CareSpot will offer testing at 15 locations as well.

“Telescope Health and Baptist Health have demonstrated an invaluable commitment to the health and well-being of our citizens and community,” Mayor Lenny Curry said in a news release.

“We are grateful for their partnership and assistance launching the first testing site at the onset of this pandemic and we value the expertise they are continuing to provide to help stop the spread of COVID-19.”

The city will open new locations throughout the community in the coming weeks. For information about the locations, visit coj.net/covid19testing.
