Free COVID-19 testing coming to 2 metro Atlanta MARTA stations

Starting Thursday, Oct. 29th, DeKalb and Fulton officials are opening two new free COVID-19 testing sites near MARTA stations in their respective counties.

“As COVID cases continue to rise in Georgia, we want to make sure MARTA customers and residents who live near our rail stations have access to quick, free testing,” MARTA General Manager and CEO Jeffrey Parker said in a statement. “We are grateful to the City of Brookhaven and Mayor Ernst and Fulton County and Chairman Pitts for their leadership and for including MARTA in order to make these sites easily accessible for everyone.”

Testing in DeKalb County will be available in the long-term parking lot at Brookhaven Station located at 4047 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta, 30319. The testing site, run by COVID Care Georgia, is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. every weekday, except Wednesday, and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on weekends.

“Free COVID-19 testing, along with flu shots, are available at State Farm Arena, easily accessed by taking MARTA to GWCC/CNN rail station,” online commentary site Saporta Report confirms. “The testing and vaccination areas are located at the south end of the arena, near MARTA, on the walkway between Centennial Park Drive and the Georgia World Congress Center.”

COVID-19 testing and flu shots are available at State Farm Arena from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily until the end of early voting on Friday, October 30th.
