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.

West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James delivered some optimistic news regarding the city's fight against the coronavirus.

“We are in the very early stages of thinking about the process of reopening our city, and what that might look like … we have to look at our reopening not as a big splash, but rather as a gradual flow like the slow opening of a faucet,” James said this past Friday.
