Florida Department of Health Nassau County Expands COVID-19 Testing to Include Asymptomatic Individuals
Florida Department of Health in Nassau County has expanded COVID-19 Specimen Collection Testing to include those individuals who are asymptomatic (without signs or symptoms of COVID-19) and wish to know their current status. This point-in- time testing is not antibody testing, it is diagnostic testing to show if an individual currently has the COVID-19 virus.
This will provide information regarding the number of active cases of COVID-19 within our community so we can best prepare and respond to this public health threat. The Department of Health in Nassau’s expanded testing initiative, called “May2Day” with a goal to test 2% of our community each month, began on May 7, 2020 in support of the Governor’s Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step. Plan for Florida’s Recovery.
Florida Department of Health in Nassau County’s COVID-19 Mobile Testing events will be offered, while test supplies last and weather permitting, on a first come, first serve basis, at identified locations across the county. Those who wish to be tested, please note the following:
As part of this expanded community testing effort, the COVID-19 Specimens for Testing will be shipped to a state-contracted commercial laboratory. Results of COVID-19 testing will be provided as the lab results become available to the Florida Department of Health in Nassau County. Routine testing of prioritized high-risk individuals who are ill are conducted at the Health Department clinics.
