University of Florida Health COVID-19 Testing Program in The Villages
April 15, 2020 @ 12:00 am - April 16, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
We have nearly doubled our initial goal of testing 2,000 people in the community. To date, we have now offered testing to 3,955 people — 1,855 people with symptoms and 2,100 people without symptoms.
We appreciate the continued high level of interest in our screening program. The availability of test kits is subject to pressures on the state and national supply chain. We are pleased to continue to offer testing when these supplies are available, and the schedule will fluctuate accordingly.
We are currently offering CLINICAL testing for COVID-19 on Thursday, April 16, 2020 for symptomatic/high-risk persons who meet existing criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, and Department of Health (i.e., you have symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough or fever; have had direct contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case; and/or have traveled to a high-risk area or on a cruise ship within the past 14 days). If you register for an appointment for testing on Thursday, you will be tested with supplies and test kits that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and CDC.
