“The Health Care District expanded testing at its West Palm Beach and Jupiter clinics this week and we are excited to do the same at the Delray Beach clinic starting on Monday,” said Darcy J. Davis, Health Care District CEO in a written statement. “We recognize the need for more testing in our community and these new sites expand access for residents in underserved areas in both the northern and southern ends of the county.”

Tests will be conducted at the new Delray Beach site Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon.

A West Palm Beach coronavirus testing site, located at 1150 45th St., is conducting tests Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to noon.
