SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - Testing sites are expanding in Central Florida with a focus on Seminole County this week.
There are more than 20 test sites in Seminole County and now several more are opening.
Registration is now open for AdventHealth’s community drive-up testing location at the Seminole Towne Center Mall in Sanford.
The test site will be open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone with or without symptoms or who has had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 may be tested. A doctor’s note is not required.
AdventHealth officials said insurance is accepted, but added that they will cover the cost for anyone who is uninsured.
The test consists of coughing and spitting into a cup. Results can be expected in two to three days.
An appointment with AdventHealth can be made on their website.
Pop-up community test sites are also coming to Seminole County.
“Targeted test sites specific to communities,” Alan Harris of Seminole County Emergency Management said. “Lower income, or seniors, or elderly and those that may not have transportation or get test if they wish to.”
The pop-up sites will be at a different location each day this week.
“If we identify that there is a large number of people that need to be tested at the site, we are ready to come back to the facility, come back to that neighborhood later on if we need to do additional testing," Harris added.
