Brookhaven site remains open; free at-home tests available

The DeKalb Board of Health’s COVID-19 testing site in Stonecrest is closing.

The site at 2994 Turner Hill Road will close at the end of the day Thursday, leaving just one county-run mass testing location remaining in DeKalb. That site (at the Brookhaven MARTA station, 1238 Apple Valley Road NE) will still offer testing from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Testing is free but appointments are required.

The DeKalb Board of Health will also continue to offer free at-home COVID-19 test kits at all of its regional health center locations. No health insurance or ID is required to obtain the kits.
