Fort Lauderdale Covid Test Site Open

I just received an email from Mayor Trantalis.  It describes the initial steps towards the city “re-opening” and announces that the city has obtained a testing site.  Be sure to call ahead and schedule an appointment if you have coronavirus concerns.

Fort Lauderdale Covid Test Site Open

Official Statement from Mayor Trantalis:

“the first testing site within our city — at Holiday Park. This centrally located site will allow us to better serve our residents in conjunction with the recently opened facility at the Urban League just outside the city. Most of the other testing sites are located far out in Broward’s western suburbs. This new testing will provide the critical help for business to reopen and allow us to gauge if the infection rate in our community remains low or whether we need to readjust our plans because of a rebound in the virus’ presence. The drive-thru facility will be able to conduct 400 swab tests a day. It will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. by appointment only. Anyone over the age of 18 will be able to be tested whether or not they are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms. No doctor referral is necessary.
Appointments can be made by calling 1-800-209-7919 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Upon arrival, individuals should use the Federal Highway entrance and provide proper identification that has name, date of birth and photo. There will be a separate entrance for first-responders who need to be tested. First-responders may make appointments and would use the Sunrise Boulevard entrance. Tests will be administered by healthcare professionals from American Medical Response. Our team will follow up with the individuals and provide the results.”
