With case numbers rising in the area, the City of St. Pete announced that it has opened a drive-through Covid testing site at Tropicana Field, operating as of Thursday, January 13. A partnership with Impact Health and the Tampa Bay Rays, the testing site is located in Lot 2 of the Tropicana Field parking lot and is open seven days per week from 8 am – 5 pm.
PCR and rapid antigen testing will both be offered at no cost, and those with health coverage will be asked to present an insurance card. While the site is open immediately, it will be closed on Monday, January 17, due to road closures from the MLK Day parade.
Testing is available as a drive-up service, but the city recommends pre-registering at impacthealth.com/StPeteTrop to save time upon arrival. Drivers are asked to line up southbound on 16th Street South and turn west on 3rd Avenue South to enter the testing area.
The testing site at the Center for Health Equity, previously the only site in St. Pete, is still open, as well, from 9 am – 5 pm daily. It is located at 2333 34th Street South.
