ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) – A new temporary drive-thru COVID-19 testing site is opening in Midtown Anchorage, according to the Southcentral Foundation.

The foundation announced Tuesday that is has provided funding for the temporary site, located at 999 E. Tudor Rd., which is being operated by Visit Healthcare. According to the foundation’s press release, the drive-thru site will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

There are no appointments required to use this site, and testing is open to the public. The site in Midtown will be operated for the next few months, the release states.
