The City of Daytona Beach and the Florida Department of Health are teaming up to bring a Free COVID-19 Testing site to return to the Midtown area in Daytona Beach for two days only.
The site will be located on the corner of Nova Rd and Orange Ave, in a vacant lot across from the Midtown Police Precinct on June 24 and 25. Hours of Operation will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
In May, the COVID-19 testing site at the Midtown Community Center was open for 10 days and administered 1,375 tests. Eight people tested positive at the site, which is a .5% positivity rate.
According to release, Wednesday, June 25 will offer drive-thru testing, and Thursday, June 25 will offer walk-up testing.
The free test will be a nasal swab and available for anyone over 18, regardless of symptoms. An appointment is not needed; however, residents are requested to pre-register to avoid waiting in line at the testing site.
Results will be provided as soon as possible, usually within seven days.
To pre-register, call (386) 274-0500 and press #. A prescription and city residency is not required to be tested. A photo ID is required.
