CORONAVIRUS: Local Testing Site In Boca or Delray May Be Announced Today

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We don’t like to report unconfirmed reports but we are hearing from several sources that a mobile testing facility in South Palm Beach County — possibly Boca Raton or Delray Beach — may be announced as soon as today. While FEMA and other federal agencies were apparently against testing in Palm Beach County at all, the incredible volume of tests requested from the brand new mobile testing site on Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach may have sent a message that south Palm Beach County needs help. More than 50-thousand people — yes, 50,000 people, attempted to make appointments for the Haverhill Road location in the first hour appointments were available on Monday morning. The Haverhill Road facility started testing Tuesday and was only able to service roughly 250 people.

If you need a test, for now, call 561-642-1000. You will be asked several questions by a medical screen who will determine whether you qualify for a test or not. Keep in mind that you must have an appointment before you show up at the 5444 Haverhill Road facility — if you don’t have an appointment, you will be turned away.
