Lake County is offering COVID-19 testing at three locations at a reduced cost.
The effort is a joint venture with Adult Medicine of Lake County, the City of Leesburg, Lake-Sumter State College and the Florida Department of Health.
FDA approved swab or antibody tests will be administered to Lake County residents for $20 through May 17. The sites will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at:
- 109 E. Dixie Ave., Leesburg (Venetian Gardens at the intersection of Canal Street and Dixie Avenue) – testing to be available starting on April 24, then on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Testing is limited to two per resident and results will be returned within 1 to 3 days after testing. Adult Medicine of Lake County offers swab or antibody tests for $85 for non-residents. No appointment is needed for the drive-thru testing sites and residents are required to present proof of residence to qualify for the reduced testing fee.
