The COVID-19 testing site staffed by FIU students and faculty in partnership with Miami-Dade County, the Florida Department of Health, and the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition is closed today for disinfecting after an asymptomatic member of the site management team tested positive.
“As soon as we learned of this positive case on our team, we decided to shut down the site to test every member of the team, disinfect the site according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and mitigate the risk for our team and the residents who count on us,” said Dr. Eneida Roldan, the CEO of the
 FIU HealthCare Network and Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) associate dean who serves as clinical director for the testing site.
The site opened on April 8 and has tested 10,000 patients. To qualify for testing, a person must be at least 12 years old and does not need to be experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19.
Appointments for COVID-19 tests are available seven days a week at several locations by calling 305-499-8767. The call center opens at 9 a.m. and takes appointments for the following day until all the slots are filled. The call center then closes until the next day at 9 a.m.
