Frequently Asked Questions

When are the testing centers open?

The Regional Drive-Through Testing Site at the Convention Center opens daily at 9 a.m.

How long is the wait at the Regional Drive-Through Testing Site at the Convention Center?

Individuals should be prepared for long wait times. We anticipate the test will take around 20 minutes per person.

What does the drive-thru testing process entail?

Patients will not exit their vehicle. As vehicles enter the center, individuals will be screened for symptoms and asked relevant questions. If patients are determined to fall within the testing criteria, they will then move on to individual registration. Following this, samples will be collected, and individuals will be informed on what to expect regarding the testing process, who will contact them and a timeframe for results.

Will you test my spouse/other household members?

If individuals in a vehicle meet the criteria, multiple people can be tested. Maximum of 5 per vehicle.

Do I need insurance?

No, all individuals will be tested regardless of insurance status. However, individuals with insurance should bring their information. Please note, no co-pays will be required of individuals who bring their insurance.

Does this test cost money?

This is a free public resource.

I am a tourist from outside the United States and I have symptoms. Can I get tested?

Yes, all individuals who meet the criteria will be tested in order to protect the public health of Florida communities and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

What should I do while I wait for my results?

Results will be processed by approved labs. We ask patients that are under investigation to self-quarantine to prevent the risk of spreading illness to those around them. Please be patient as samples are tested and take the necessary precautions to monitor symptoms and self-quarantine.

How will I receive results?

At discharge, you will be informed what to expect regarding contact and timeframe.
