DECATUR–DeKalb County Board of Health will implement uniform hours at the county’s three COVID-19 testing sites.

Beginning Monday, Dec. 14, hours of operation for all locations will be 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Stonecrest location will remain open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon, until Dec. 26.

Health officials say those seeking testing will need to adequately plan ahead to ensure that results are received in time to meet travel or other proof of testing requirements.

“The implementation of these measures is necessary to avoid overwhelming the testing system currently in place and to ensure that those being tested receive their results in a timely manner,” said DeKalb County District Health Director S. Elizabeth Ford, M.D., M.B.A.

Appointment scheduling and registration for COVID-19 testing can be done online. COVID-19 testing is free and open to all individuals who wish to be tested. A driver’s license or identification card is not required, however registration in advance is strongly encouraged.
