No appointments are needed.

Fulton County announced Tuesday that walk-up COVID-19 testing is available at three early voting sites this week.

Testing will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday at the following polling locations: South Fulton Service Center, 5600 Stonewall Tell Road; Garden Hills Elementary, 285 Sheridan Drive NE in Atlanta; Sandy Springs Library, 395 Mount Vernon Highway NE in Sandy Springs.

No appointment or symptoms are needed to get tested.

The Fulton County Board of Health is providing testing at the South Fulton center site, and the organization CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) is doing the testing at the other two sites.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in mid-April said he would mail absentee ballot request forms to the state's roughly 6.9 million voters as a way to mitigate people getting sick from voting in person. Technical hiccups have made that harder to do, and some long lines to vote were seen in Futlon.

Testing is still available at other sites: Center for Health & Rehabilitation, 265 Boulevard NE in Atlanta; Wolf Creek Amphitheater, 3025 Merk Road; 4700 North Point Parkway in Alpharetta.
