Central Outreach says the data will be updated daily

Testing at the Zoo continues weekdays from 11 a.m. through 4 p.m. and the number of tests distributed depends on the shipment size they receive.

You also do not need a referral or prescription. 

 The testing is offered by the Central Outreach Wellness Center.

Anyone would like to get tested should bring a photo ID and your insurance card. 

No one will be turned away who does not have insurance.

However, they advise you should only be tested if you are showing symptoms, otherwise, stay home. 

Testing is scheduled daily or until tests run out.
