North GA – MAKO Medical drive-thru COVID-19 testing will end in Blue Ridge, Chatsworth and Jasper, as of Thursday, April 14th. The MAKO test sites that will remain open in North Georgia are those in Dalton, Ellijay and Woodstock.

Now that COVID-19 cases are decreasing in Georgia and home test kits have become easily accessible, the volume of residents seeking services from these test sites is declining.

Public health officials continue to urge people to get tested for COVID-19, regardless of their vaccination status, if they have COVID-19 type symptoms or have been in close contact recently to a person infected with the virus.

Locations and operating hours for the MAKO Medical Drive-thru COVID-19 Test Sites that remain in North Georgia are:

Pleasant Grove Park

COVID-19 testing is free at these sites and there are no eligibility requirements other than having a Georgia address and registering at https://mako.exchange/splash/GAmakotesting/. This is PCR testing done by a mid-nasal swab to determine the presence of the virus that causes COVID-19. It is not an antigen or antibody test.
