It will be set up at the Dartmouth Sportsplex Transit Terminal on Wyse Road from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
"Testing is available to anyone who is experiencing symptoms, has no symptoms (asymptomatic), has been to a potential exposure site, or is a close contact of a positive case of COVID-19," said Nova Scotia Health in a news release.
PCR tests are free for all ages, including swish and gargle tests for those between the ages of 4 and 18.
