Do you offer Antibodies testing?
Not at this time at this location. Antibodies testing at a fee is offered through Boca location. Antibodies testing is a blood test so it requires different set up which cannot be done at a drive thru.
Are symptoms needed to book an appointment?
Many people may be asymptomatic and still have COVID, therefore you do not need to have symptoms to be tested. Priority is given to those who need the test because they may have been exposed to the virus.
