    State of Florida Announces Three New COVID-19 Testing Sites Through Partnership with Publix
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) announced that an additional three COVID-19 testing sites across the state have been created through a partnership between Publix, FDEM and Quest Diagnostics. These sites will open on Thursday, June 4, 2020. The testing sites will be located in three Publix parking lots for FDEM to conduct COVID-19 testing.
    The parking lot locations include:
    • Publix at Port Charlotte Crossing
      4265 Tamiami Trail
      Port Charlotte, FL 33980
    • Publix at Coral Ridge
      11600 W. Sample Road
      Coral Springs, FL 33065
    • Publix at Saxon Crossings
      2100 Saxon Blvd
      Deltona, FL 32725
    The Division is providing staffing and personal protective equipment at each site. Each of these walk-up, parking lot test sites will be able to conduct up to 100 tests per day. Tests will be sent to Quest Diagnostics and results will be available within 5 – 7 days.
    Testing at these sites is free and available to anyone over the age of 18, regardless of symptoms. 
    Under the direction of Governor DeSantis, the state has established more than 15 drive-thru and 17 walk-up testing sites across the state. To date, more than 230,000 individuals have been tested at these sites. Floridians can find a site near them here.
    On Friday, May 29, Governor DeSantis announced a partnership with Home Depot and Publix to create six sites statewide, and that announcement can be found here.
