PAINESVILLE, Ohio — UPDATE: Per the Lake County Sheriff's Office, there are no more tests being given unless you have previously registered. Anyone heading there now will be turned away.

A pop-up COVID-19 drive-thru testing site will open Wednesday at the Lake County Fairgrounds, according to a news release from the Lake County General Health District.

It will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. or until supplies last. Health workers will use rapid antigen tests that typically return results within 15 minutes.

Appointments aren't necessary, but it's recommended to print out and complete a preregistration form and bring it with you. The form can be found here.

The fairgrounds are located at 1301 Mentor Avenue, Painesville. The health district asks attendees to enter the fairgrounds through the Mentor Avenue entrance.
