COVID testing available Monday-Friday

Community Health Northwest Florida is now offering COVID-19 testing five days a week at two locations. The testing is a simple swab of your nostrils – not the “brain swab.”

Drive-thru testing is available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at:

  • Brownsville Community Center, 3200 West DeSoto Street
  • Community Health Northwest Florida Cantonment Pediatrics, 470 South Highway 29, Cantonment.

No pre-screening is required at the Cantonment or Brownsville locations, and the tests are available for all ages. A photo ID and insurance (if insured) are requested.


COVID-19 rapid testing is also available in partnership with Ascension Sacred Heart by appointment only for Escambia County residents three months and older who are experiencing Covid symptoms. Patients desiring rapid testing must call the Ascension Sacred Heart call center at 746-2684 to be pre-screened and scheduled if eligible.
