Pre-registration is strongly encouraged and can be done at and click on the Schedule My Test link for Drive-thru Pop Up Testing. To choose a site, you must enter the zip code of the site location.

These are pop-up, one-day only events at each site. The County encourages people to register now to reserve their spot!

“This is an exciting development for COVID-19 testing,” says Pima County Health Director Dr. Theresa Cullen. “This unorthodox style allows us to get into communities that have not had easy or broad access to tests and get a better understanding of COVID-19 across the County.”

Test results should be available by logging into your account at within a few days. The County and AZDEMA hope to complete 20,000 tests through these pop-ups.
