Kiosk in Pembroke offers free COVID-19 testing 24-7
Bryan COVID Kiosk

Free PCR testing for COVID-19 is now available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in Bryan County. The Coastal Health District has installed a test-and-go kiosk outside the Bryan County Health Department at 430 Ledford Street in Pembroke.

The kiosk will dispense a testing kit that allows you to collect your own specimen using a nasal swab, similar to at-home testing kits. The specimen is then repackaged and placed back into the kiosk. Unlike rapid at-home tests, these specimens are picked up from the kiosk daily and sent to an accredited lab for PCR testing with results by email or text, usually within 48 hours.

“COVID-19 may not be disrupting our community the way it did a year ago, but it’s not going away either,” said Laurie Mehlhorn, Nurse Manager of the Bryan County Health Department. “We’re always looking for ways to connect people with public health resources, so I’m excited this free PCR testing option is now available all day every day in our area.”

With the addition of this new location, there are now 6 testing kiosks in the Coastal Health District. Test-and-go kiosks are available outside the following locations:

  • The Bryan County Health Department – 430 Ledford Street, Pembroke
  • Liberty Campus of Georgia Southern University – 175 West Memorial Drive, Hinesville
  • The Student Union on the Georgia Southern University, Armstrong Campus – 11935 Abercorn Street, Savannah
  • The Chatham County Health Department – 1395 Eisenhower Drive, Savannah
  • The Glynn County Health Department – 2747 Fourth Street, Brunswick
  • Southeast Georgia Physician Associates, Primary Care – 1022 Miller Lane SW, Darien

There is no out-of-pocket cost for the test, although insurance will be billed if insurance information is provided. More information can be found online at
