It is difficult to get nominations for the COVID tests;  here is where you can go

In recent months, most mass testing sites closed. If you want a free test, getting an appointment soon can be hard. Getting a Rapid test is even harder. “Lots of places had backed off and we weren’t doing as much testing out in our community.” CVS’ website on Friday morning showed very few appointments available in Lee County for Rapid or PCR tests, which take two to three days for results.

“About two weeks ago is when I started thinking, gosh, we’re gonna have problems,” said Dr. Stephanie Stovall, interim chief of quality and safety at Lee Health. More than 17,000 new cases were reported in Florida on Thursday, not quite what doctors want to see.

Stovall, an infectious disease expert, said one concern is that more people are getting sick and needing a test, but there are fewer places to go. With COVID-19 cases rising, the demand for testing is rising as well, and with no plans to open new testing sites, trying to get an appointment is almost impossible.

“Vaccination prevents serious or severe disease, hospitalization and death. It’s never intended to prevent all infections. So there are breakthrough cases of infections.” “It’s a little disheartening to see ourselves in this position again,” she said. Stovall said because of the delta variant, it’s not just unvaccinated people coming in to get tested.

The Department of Health and Curative also offer free PCR tests. All the rest cost more than $100 or your copay at urgent care. Walgreens only offers PCR tests. They had a few stores with appointments Friday, but most were a few days from now.
