Many public testing sites for COVID-19 have requirements, such as being open only to patients that are already showing symptoms or requiring that people make an appointment before they’re allowed to be tested. Those simply looking for peace of mind from the result may not be eligible.
Much of that is now changing thanks to the recent opening of a new testing site in Miami Beach. Located at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the testing accepts drive-thrus but also allows for walk-ins without an appointment. To be tested, patients must be eighteen or older. Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are also being allowed. Patients are not required to show symptoms to be tested and, again, there is no appointment required.
Miami Beach’s COVID-19 testing site is operating each day from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m at the 17th Street entrance to the Convention Center. When heading out for testing, be sure to wear a mask and have a photo ID ready before you go.
