Update on Free COVID-19 Testing on Hilton Head Island

February 26, 2022

Beginning Monday, February 28, COVID-19 testing events on Hilton Head Island will only be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

"With the number of COVID-19 cases declining, we have worked with providers to adjust their schedules so they align with the lesser demand from the public for testing. We will continue to monitor cases and will plan accordingly should the need arise for additional testing days," said Tom Dunn, Emergency Manager for the Town of Hilton Head Island.
