Broward County does still have COVID test sites, despite website glitch

The Florida Department of Health website shows no COVID-19 test locations in Broward County — even though there are actually test sites still in the region.

It’s unclear how long the website has appeared that way, but the information is not accurate. The Florida Department of Health in Broward County said Tuesday it operates six testing sites.

The walk-up and drive-thru sites operate in locations throughout the county on varying days:

Mitchell Moore Park walk-up testing site in Pompano Beach is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Thursday and Sunday.

Mullins Park walk-up testing site in Coral Springs is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 and is closed Saturday and Sunday.

Boulevard Heights Community Center walk-up testing site is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; closed Sunday and Monday.

Brian Piccolo Sports Park drive-thru testing in Cooper City is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and closed Saturday and Sunday.

Drive-thru testing at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and closed Thursday and Sunday.

Drive-thru testing at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach is open Sunday through Thursday, 8 a.m to 4 p.m. and closed Friday and Saturday.

You do not need an appointment for COVID-19 testing at these sites. The amount of time it takes to get test results varies, but averages about two days. Health officials reported Broward County tested an average of 10,700 people a day in the last week.

Along with the health department sites, nine additional walk-up or drive-thru COVID testing centers are open in Broward County, including those run by Broward Health and Cleveland Clinic. broward.org/CoronaVirus/Pages/Collection-Sites.aspx
