Demand for COVID-19 testing remains high
Margate, Florida – Drivers were lining up on Sunday morning in Margate at one of several new covid testing sites to open up across Broward County this week.
Officials will also be launching three other sites later in the week in Lauderhill, Tamarac, and Miramar in addition to this new site at the Margate Community Redevelopment Agency.
The push to expand testing comes after the state reported over 56,000 new infections on Saturday, down from the record 75,000 cases recorded days earlier.
The CDC is warning travelers to avoid cruising, regardless of whether they’re vaccinated.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, meantime, has not said much since the recent spike. He provided no comment on the state’s record-setting case numbers.
