CORONAVIRUS: Mobile Testing Site Opens Today In Palm Beach County

Coronavirus News

Reservations Required, Must Call Ahead

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The first official mobile testing site in Palm Beach County opens at 8 a.m. today in West Palm Beach, but so many people have made appointments that it is completely booked until at least Friday.

The site was announced on Sunday by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. FEMA had initially denied a testing site for PBC.

The site — which is a drive-up-and-get-swabbed-then-drive-away site, is located at 5444 Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach. But if you do not have an appointment, you will get nowhere near the actual testing line. Appointments must be made by calling 561-642-1000 — the line is staffed 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Staffers will ask you a series of medical questions to determine if you truly have a need for the testing which is expected to yield results in a few days.
