Emergency Management Announces Additional CoViD-19 Test Site through Partnership with Target
Nassau County, FL – The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) has partnered with the Target Corporation to sponsor seven CoViD-19 testing locations across the state. One of these drive-up sites will be located in the parking lot of the Yulee Target store located at 463737 SR-200 in Nassau County. Testing provided through the site is free of charge and available to anyone over 18 years of age.

Specimen collection at the Yulee Target site will take place from 0900 hours to 1600 hours, seven days a week beginning Saturday, July 25th. The site will be operational for four weeks. The FDEM is providing the necessary staffing and personal protective equipment for the operation.

Individuals who go to the Target test site in Yulee should have photo identification with them. Upon arrival, each person to be tested will register their name and contact information and then return to their vehicle or wait in a shaded area until they are notified that their specimen collection kit is ready. The samples will be sent to certified laboratories for testing; results are expected to be available within five to seven days from the date of collection.
