The free COVID-19 testing site at the city’s Midtown Community Center will continue through Sunday, May 24, while supplies last. The site, which opened Friday, May 15, has tested more than 1,000 people. Hours at the testing site are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., while supplies last. The free nasal swab testing for the coronavirus is available for people over 18 years old, regardless of symptoms. A photo ID is required; however, city residency is not a requirement to be tested. Prescriptions and appointments are not needed to get a test, and is available for 200 people per day. Once samples are collected, they are sent to a commercial laboratory for testing. Results will be provided as soon as they are available, usually within seven days. The testing site was made possible through a partnership between the City of Daytona Beach, the Florida Division of Emergency Management, the Florida Department of Health and the Florida National Guard.
