From the City of Jacksonville’s website at https://www.coj.net:

“A free federally-sponsored drive-thru COVID-19 testing site is open at TIAA Bank Field. It will operate seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for as long as supplies last. While a doctor’s order and appointment are not required at this location, clients will be evaluated by a medical professional on-site. Patients who do not meet the criteria will not receive a test and will be sent home. Test results should be received within three to seven days.

As of Sunday evening, testing criteria expands at Lot J: “Our federal partners agreed to open testing to all ages. These are now the requirements: Any age with an on-site temp of 99.6 or higher PLUS respiratory symptoms. Testing also open to first responders and healthcare workers who are in contact with patients. Lot J testing is open 7 days a week from 9 am to 5 pm. Testing is free and results will be returned within 3 to 5 days. Bring your own pen, stay in your vehicle and there are no public restrooms available.”
