Clinical testing has resumed at the polo field in The Villages for a couple of days this week. It was offered Tuesday and is set for Thursday, too.
The testing is only for people with COVID-19 symptoms and those at high risk. People must sign up at ufhealthcovid.com beginning 8 a.m. Wednesday.
UF Health officials say 300 tests are being administered each day.
The University of Florida plans to resume research-related testing later in The Villages.
Dr. Michael Lauzardo, deputy director of UF’s Emerging Pathogens Institute, said in a prepared statement the “big takeaway” is that social distancing is working in The Villages and that “the curve has been flattened.”
