The free COVID-19 testing site at Barnett Park for Orange County residents will extend operations through February.

The Barnett Park drive-through facility will continue to operate daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week, through Feb. 28. No appointments are needed.

PCR and rapid testing options (or both) are administered at this Orange County Health Services-run site.

Barnett Park's COVID-19 testing operation is among the busiest in the county, and this extended operation will be funded with leftover federal CARES Act funds and possibly some money from Orange County.
