After Governor Brian Kemp announced that testing criteria for COVID-19 has been expanded due to increased availability of test supplies, Cobb & Douglas Public Health announced that anyone who wants to be tested can schedule an appointment.

The tests will continue to be carried out in Jim Miller Park in Cobb County and Hunter Park in Douglas County.

The email announcing the expansion of testing described the process for getting tested as follows:

Anyone can now be tested!

  1. I tried to book and appt for covid 19 test at jim miller park and got thru the form and selected a location within 5 miles and then 10 miles but never got any further. so, I could not book a time or date. even though they are closed today, I should be able to book a time for Monday at least.

  2. ALSO, WHEN I START TO FILL OUT THE QUESTIONAIRE, THEY WANT A SIGN IN. WHAT IS THAT I AM NOT JOING A CLUB, SO HOW DO I SIGN IN? PEOPLE COULD DIE BECAUSE THIS PROCESS IS A MESS. YOU CANNOT GET APPT. I GUESS THIS MAKES THE STATE LOOK GOOD CAUSE NO ONE GET APPTS.

YOU CANNOT GET APPT. I GUESS THIS MAKES THE STATE LOOK GOOD CAUSE NO ONE GET APPTS. NO, THIS COMMENT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST ONE.

    • I’ll take a look at this. I know Wellstar announced delays in their tests due to the spike in cases in Georgia, but even if CDPH is experiencing the same delays, it shouldn’t affect their sign-in form. I’ll post what I find out back here.

  4. The website does not work–times out, page does not reload. I tried to book online multiple times without success. Used to be I could call Cobb-Douglas DPH and speak to a person for an appointment. The number now has a message saying to book online. I am on hold hoping to speak to a human that can get me scheduled. Highly inefficiant and frustrating way to handle public health during a public health crisis. Lack of funding may be a contributor but where there’s a will there’s a way to get people tested.
