Lee Health’s Curative COVID-19 testing sites are closing – Lehigh Acres Citizen

<!–

–>

Friday, Dec. 2, will be the last day of operations for Curative’s COVID-19 testing sites in Lee County. Lee Health partnered with Curative during the pandemic to create additional access to COVID testing for community members.

The sites, which are set-up at Lee Health’s Lee Convenient Care locations in Fort Myers and Cape Coral, have served thousands in the region with free COVID testing during the past year.

Anyone who wants to receive a COVID test on or before Dec. 2 can do so by making an appointment at www.curative.com. There are still a variety of COVID community testing sites open and available to the public. They can be found at “http://www.leehealth.org” rel=”noopener noreferrer” target=”_blank”>www.leehealth.org by searching “Community COVID-19 Testing Sites.” At-home tests are also available at local drug stores.

Lee Health encourages everyone to take necessary precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones from COVID, influenza and other illnesses, especially while gathering for the holidays. Get vaccinated, wash hands frequently, gather outside if the weather allows, and stay home if you’re sick.

It’s also important to know where to go when you’re ill. Visit your primary care physician for general concerns and head to the emergency room for severe conditions, such as chest pain or shortness of breath. Lee Convenient Care is a great resource when you need quick care for a minor injury or illness like the flu. For an on-demand urgent care service, Lee TeleHealth is available online 24/7 at https://leetelehealth.org.
