With the holiday season upon us, the COVID-19 test site in New Smyrna Beach is busier than ever, setting a new record for daily number of tests Wednesday, Dec. 23.
The Florida Division of Emergency Management has worked with the City of New Smyrna Beach to extend COVID-19 testing operations in New Smyrna Beach until July. The site, located at the City Gym, 1000 Live Oak St., New Smyrna Beach, operates from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
The test site offers both self-swab rapid antigen and PCR testing. Results for rapid testing are expected within 15 minutes.
There is no age requirement for testing. Insurance information is requested from insured individuals, but patients will not be billed any copay or coinsurance, and those without insurance will be tested free of charge.
Appointments are not required but can be made to facilitate a faster experience by visiting bit.ly/C19rapidtest. No symptoms are required for testing.
