COVID-19 Test Sites in Broward

Four days after the governor announced it would happen, drive-thru testing for COVID-19 has arrived in earnest. But not just everyone can roll up and expect to be tested. Read all the details of the testing sites below before even trying to show up to one.

POMPANO BEACH – Broward Health has set up a drive-thru center at an undisclosed location in Pompano Beach. Patients need to FIRST obtain a prescription from a doctor and THEN call a hotline to be pre-screened. That hotline is 954-320-5730. They will then be given an address.

WESTON – Cleveland Clinic has a site set up in Weston, not far from their hospital. To be tested here, patients must first call their nurse hotline at 954-659-5951 to be pre-screened. If the nurse determines the person meets the criteria, they will be given a confirmation number and given an appointment time.

PEMBROKE PINES – The Florida National Guard and Memorial Healthcare System are working to open a drive-thru test site at CB Smith Park. The expansive operation appears to be able to accommodate a large turnout. Details about who can be tested here have not yet been announced.
