The State of Florida is taking the necessary precautions to keep residents safe and healthy by opening a drive-through testing site at the Orange County Convention Center. Temporary drive-through testing sites reduce overwhelming the health departments and help prevent unnecessary illness spread at healthcare facilities. At these sites, individuals will have their swab sample collected, and the sample will be sent to approved testing labs. The test results will NOT be provided on-site and information will be given on time frame to those discharged.
Regional partners have assisted with executing a state and federally-managed drive-thru test site at the Orange County Convention Center. This community-based test site is led by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and will be limited to 250 tests per day. The site opens daily at 9 a.m. and will remain open until 5 p.m. or until 250 individuals have been swabbed.
Testing will be available ONLY for first responders, healthcare workers, and symptomatic individuals age 65 and older.
For individuals 65+:
• Must have an on-site temperature of 99.6 degrees or higher and respiratory symptoms
• Must have an ID to be tested
For first responders and medical staff:
• Do not have to have COVID-19 symptoms
• Must have valid agency ID
For those who visit the site, be prepared to wait inside personal vehicles for extended wait times. There are no bathrooms on site. Test results will not be provide on-site.
