COVID-19 testing sites open in Volusia

Area residents are administered vaccines last month at the Midtown Cultural & Educational Center in Daytona Beach.

Volusia County Government in partnership with the Florida Department of Health in Volusia County and city partners have contracted with private companies to open two testing sites within the county.

Curative, Inc. opened a testing site on Sept. 3 at the Midtown Cultural and Educational Center, 925 George W. Engram Blvd., Daytona Beach.

The mobile site will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and is able to accommodate up to 600 tests per day. Appointments are recommended and can be made at curative.com or 888-702-9042; walk-ups will be accommodated.

The site will operate as an outdoor, walk-up site. Curative will have trained workers on-site observing and directing patients to complete a self-collected, shallow nasal PCR test. The test is available for symptomatic and asymptomatic people ages one year and older.

Patients can expect results within 48 hours upon receipt at the lab. There is no charge for the test, but patients will be asked for health insurance information. Patients without health insurance will not be turned away. Testing will be offered as long as demand warrants.
