City partnering with Florida Department of Health to provide Covid-19 Testing

The City of Alachua is partnering with the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County to provide drive-thru COVID-19 testing to Alachua residents ages 10 and older.

Testing will be offered on Monday, June 8 from 9 a.m. to noon at no out-of-pocket cost to Alachua residents, with or without insurance. The tests will be available by appointment only to ensure residents receive important information and to increase the speed of the testing process.

Residents will remain in their vehicle during the process.

To make an appointment, call 386-418-6147 Monday-Thursday between 7:30 am. and 6 p.m., or email [email protected] anytime. Appointments must be scheduled no later than 5 p.m. on June 3.

The Florida Department of Health of Alachua County will administer the tests. However, results are not available immediately. Results are typically available within 3-7 days.

Residents should not bring any pets with them during testing.

Help us celebrate the Santa Fe High School Class of 2020! The City of Alachua teamed up with Santa Fe High School staff today to honor our seniors. As the soon-to-be graduates dropped off textbooks and picked up their caps and gowns, City commissioners and staff presented the seniors with Raider Class of 2020 gear and provided lunch. We were joined by two special Raider alumni - State Representative Clovis Watson Jr. and Circuit Court Judge Susanne Wilson Bullard who offered their support and best wishes to their fellow Raiders. Special thanks to the City of High Springs for helping as well as School Board Member Tina Certain. Congratulations to the Santa Fe High School Class of 2020!!! #RaiderPride #RaiderTough

What is the city doing about the constant power outages? We've lost power nine out of the last ten days.
I am a parent from Altha Fl, an my daughter is at the Alachua Girls academy. I know my daughter was placed there on our judge decision I know she was wrong an has to face the punishment an won't be released until the end of October but my daughter is not a problem child an yesterday a male staff decided to call a group meeting with the other girls in the facility an took it upon him self to bully my daughter with these other girls in the facility he allowed them to talk mean words an say what they wanted to say about my daughter an he also told my daughter's room mate who did not want to say anything negative about my daughter that if she did not speak up an say something the he would make sure 30 more days would be added to her sentence. My daughter has been placed away from everyone in the facility an one staff member to watch over her for her safety. I'm 3.5 hours away from my daughter I can't put my arms around her an let her know it will be ok ..I feel as a community you need to be aware of the bullying my child is receiving in your county an I will fight as far as I have to for my daughter...
