The Northeast Georgia Public Health District also offers free testing by appointment only at both a central testing site in Winterville and a mobile clinic currently stationed in Jefferson. So do UGA’s Athens Free Mobile Clinic and the Athens Neighborhood Health Center.

In addition, asymptomatic UGA students, faculty and staff can receive free tests at Legion Field and at pop-up sites around campus.
