COVID-19 testing coming to Publix, Home Depot

Coronavirus testing will be available at select Home Depot and Publix locations, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Friday.

The retailers will add three new testing sites each, joining several Walmarts, CVS, and Walgreens among retailers providing dozens of testing sites.

DeSantis made the announcement at a Boca Raton Home Depot, where he also promoted preparedness for hurricane season.

“We want to do it as convenient as possible for people,” DeSantis said about testing. “Perhaps as people are shopping, they have the ability now to get tested.”
