Several COVID-19 testing centers are up and running in South Florida, with more expected to open in the coming weeks. Most of the centers are drive-thru only, which means you need to be in a car or truck with a working window.

Each of the centers also has criteria for testing eligibility and different sets of hours. The most common symptoms are fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases an infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and even death. The period within which the symptoms would appear is 2-14 days.
