Any emergency personnel, first responders, law enforcement, or medical personnel with ID badge will be able to be swabbed.
There is 24-72 hr turn-around for results, this is what they are projecting.  
Everyone else must be:
  • 65 and older only
  • Have symptoms (ie. Shortness of breath,  temperature over 100.4)
  • Or answer certain questions such as traveled to NY, CA, foreign country
  • Been in a gathering over 200
  • In context with someone who has tested positive with coronavirus, etc.
There is a by appointment only site at the Marlins Park also.  To open Wednesday with a hotline for questions and appt scheduling 305-499-8767.
These are all drive thru collection sites
  • be prepared for lines about 1-2 hrs. 
  • Windows must remain up during the drive thru until told to lower the window.  
  • Everyone in vehicle must be able to be tested or it seems to cause set backs. 
There are three tents to drive thru.  
  • First, screening to be asked questions and symptoms. 
  • Second, information tent for name,  address,  telephone number to receive test results at.  
  • Third,  the swabbing tent, thru nose to throat. 
Just bare in mind some will be turned away if they don’t have symptoms or if they don’t meet the criteria for the questions. 
Hopefully this helps and people aren’t afraid to come.
