Step 2 - Finding the testing site and what to bring

The test site is a drive-through location to maximize safety. You will be directed to drive around the building and enter through a garage door. Staying in the car, you will be asked a series of questions and receive any tests ordered. You will then exit, driving out another garage door on the opposite side of the building.

The testing site location change was made to have a more fixed location with proper utilities during the winter months when weather can be unpredictable.
