The latest statistics indicate a concerning increase in infections, making testing a vital part of our collective effort to curb the spread of the virus.
- COVID-19 Numbers on the Rise

While vaccines have been a crucial tool in the fight against COVID-19, testing remains a fundamental aspect of early detection and containment in South Florida.
- Why Getting Tested Matters
Getting tested for COVID-19 is about your health and the well-being of your family, friends, and neighbors. By knowing your COVID-19 status, you can take appropriate measures to prevent further transmission. Testing is a responsible and community-minded action whether you have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who tested positive.
- When to Get Tested for COVID-19
