CORONAVIRUS: Testing Site Again Stops Accepting Appointments

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The only official mobile testing site in Palm Beach County is again closed for new appointments. From Palm Beach County:

“The Health Care District of Palm Beach County received over 76,000 calls in the first hour this morning, representing over 1,100 unique callers. During that time, representatives scheduled nearly 850 appointments for COVID-19 drive-thru testing for Saturday at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach. The call center is not taking more calls today.

Officials say the hotline will reopen Friday morning until 500 additional appointments are made. The testing site is on Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach. You MUST have an appointment — you will be turned away if you do not. Call screeners are determining who qualifies for a COVID-19 test.


When it reopens, the testing appointment line is 561-642-1000.
