The site is expected to be open Thursday and continue through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Anyone will be able to receive a nasal swab COVID-19 test while supplies last.
The test is free and people do not need to have symptoms to be tested.
“Residents utilizing the drive-thru testing will need to travel south on South Thompson Avenue from West Beresford Avenue and will be given a roadside test by the park,” officials said.
For those looking to get a walk-up test, the test will be given on the grounds of Spring Hill Park.
Officials ask that residents pre-register for a test by calling 386-274-0500. Select # for coronavirus information.
The registration call center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
“It will take about 7 days to receive results and tests will only provide information on whether the person is infected with COVID-19 at the time of the test,” officials said.
According to a news release, the Department of Health will call the phone number given at registration to provide results of the test.
