Calendar and information on Covid tests and vaccinations from the Ministry of Health:
Priority will be given to all students, faculty and school staff in public or private schools in Flagler County, followed by the general public, who must make an appointment for testing by calling 386-437-7350 ext. 0.
Saturday and Sunday: Closed.
Please consider the following when testing with DOH-Flagler.
* Testing should take place at least 3-5 days after exposure. Testing earlier than this can result in false negatives.
* This is NOT a drive-thru test site. You will park and enter the cattle hall where the tests take place.
* Wear a mask inside the test facility. If your test is positive, you may be asked to leave the facility and wait for the rest of your group outside to avoid transmission.
* DOH staff continue to work extended hours to follow up on contact tracing and case investigation. We appreciate your continued patience. The DOH may take a long time to reach those who test positive for COVID-19. Take the initiative to self-isolate for at least ten days and encourage close contacts to watch for symptoms.
* If you are identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive, you may not hear from the health service if resources are not available.
* If you have been vaccinated (two weeks after your last dose) you will not need to quarantine if you do not have symptoms.
* If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible.
* Students must self-quarantine at least four days after the exhibition date.
