Tropicana Field COVID-19 Testing Site Closing For the Day

SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Tropicana Field COVID-19 testing site has reached capacity and is closing to new cars for the day, but residents can be tested at a number of other sites throughout the county at no cost.

A list of many of those testing sites is available at https://covid19.pinellascounty.org/testing/

Residents are also reminded that a negative test result only shows your status on the day you were tested. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please follow all quarantine guidance.

Rapid testing is available at Tropicana Field, however, residents are urged to know what type of test they need before heading to the site. Many employers, airlines, travel businesses etc. require the regularly offered PCR test.

Important note: Results from the PCR test may take several days, but this test is considered more accurate than the rapid test.

Residents arriving at the Tropicana Field testing site are asked to stay in their car. Walk-ups are not permitted. A list of sites that accept walk-ups is available on the website above.
