The Health Care District of Palm Beach County will begin operating a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches on Tuesday in West Palm Beach.

Prospective patients will be required to go through a phone screening before scheduling an appointment to be tested. Callers will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms such as fever and cough. Patients with appointments will be tested from within their vehicles, and test results will be available within a few days.

According to the HCDPBC website, “those who come for testing without an appointment will be turned away. The Health Care District will continue to make appointments for the drive-thru testing as long as test kits, PPE and staffing are available.”

The HCDPBC website states that “The Health Care District is working in coordination with Palm Beach County, the Florida National Guard, the Florida Department of Emergency Management and the Florida Department of Health for Palm Beach County to support COVID-19 testing at this one site in the county.”

For phone screenings, call 561/642-1000.
