New Walmart COVID-19 testing site opens in Orlando

A new coronavirus testing site at the Walmart on Goldenroad Road in Orlando for testing on Tuesday morning.

The drive-thru site is open for first responders, healthcare providers and anyone showing symptoms. 

Joining forces with Quest Diagnostics and the City of Orlando, the site is offering free testing. 
Officials are asking all patients to wear a mask and stay in their cars when getting tested. 
"I want to be tested. For the job that I do, I'm always with people, but I haven't been working for the last 10 days," said shopper Ernesto Benitez. "I'm okay but I want to just make sure."
