From the Department of Health in Orange County Newsroom

With the success of the first round of testing, the Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) announces a second round of free, mobile COVID-19 Testing in Orange County.

Residents of Orange County, Florida can secure an appointment for testing by calling DOH-Orange’s COVID-19 Call Center at 407-723-5004.  The Call Center is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.

There is no criteria for testing, however, appointments are required and individuals must be 18 years and older. Testing activities will sustain as long as supplies last.

Individuals can walk to the drive-through testing sites; however, they must have an official appointment provided by the Call Center. We ask individuals with an appointment to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before their scheduled time.

DOH-Orange is partnering with Orange County Government, the City of Orlando, the City of Apopka, and Orange County Public Schools to facilitate the testing.

  1. I am not surprised about them planning to set up testing at AHS parking lot. We get the hazardous stuff brought over here in the parking lot every year, but now it really is more hazardous. Since I live right next to the AHS parking lot, I hope the winds aren’t blowing our direction that day.

  2. One of our residents in Zellwood Station has been in constant correspondence with OC to try to get testing for our residents. And finally this will be very close and convenient for us. Thank you to all who made this finally available to us, and to our resident Art Perrault for his benevolent concern for his neighbors. We have heard nothing from the park administration in the last few weeks except: Our doors are going to be locked.

  3. Unbelievable that Trump is suggesting injecting disinfectants into people to cure their covid-19. What was he thinking? That is crazy! I can’t wait until the election, to vote him out of office! He bragged about having a really good brain by pointing at his head. He is such an embarrassment. I can’t believe the things that spouts out of his potty hole mouth. I understand that very recently he paid some big bucks to import monkeys into this country, destined for medical research. I feel sorry for those monkeys, because obviously he wants to inject disinfectants in bodies to “cure” covid-19. Poor little innocent monkeys, what a shame, trapping them from their monkey families to torture in locked medical research labs.

  4. Why is it that the article was just written and posted today? The Department to make the appointments was closed by the time we saw and read it. My husband and I really would have liked to have gone tomorrow as we have a lot of other appointments on Tuesday. What a bummer! It’s just not right. We are Seniors with underlying health conditions and have been waiting for this to come closer to us.

    • Hi Wanda,

      The Orange County Health Dept. just announced this today. Unfortunately none of these new mobile sites are open on the weekend, only Monday – Friday. Apopka’s mobile testing location is only open Tuesday, April 28.

    • Yes, I was on hold for over two hours and then gave up. I guess these people must take care of friends an family first.

  5. Good Morning
    Do these test sites allow snowbirds. We stay in our Apopka home 6 months and NJ is our legal residency. We’ve been here since 12/1 and sure aren’t planning to go to NJ yet. All my bill are ebills and our IDs are NJ.
    Thanks for your assistance

  6. I posted earlier, but nay have messed up. Are snowbirds eligible. We stay in our Apopka home 6 months but it legal residency is NJ
    We have been here since 12/1 and are not heading back north soon
    We are in our 70s

  7. I haven been on hold for TWO HOURS!!!! I dialed 407-723-5004 and no one has answered!!! NO ONE!!! I will continue to hold until the office closed and if no one answers, I am still showing up at the school tomorrow morning. This is ridiculous!!! How can you get tested when you can’t obtain an appointment?!?!?!? If I get turned away, I will be going to WESH 2 News letting them after holding ALL DAY, no one answered my call for an appointment and they wouldn’t test me without an appointment. Is anybody able to obtain an appointment through this number?!?!?!?! RIDICULOUS!!!

  8. I c the folks that were suppose to return the call could care less. Must have found out I was a Trump supporter, so now I get it.alled the phone number early this morning. I held for 2.5 hours and decided to hang up. I recalled later in the afternoon and held for sum time until a recording came on and asked if I wanted to leave message. I did. I told them my wife and I are in our 70s and have been exposed to the virus from my brother and sister in law from Boston. They were here visiting and when they arrived home after some time came down with it. I also advised that I have COPD. I thought tese many calls and wait time were important but I guess that
