AdventHealth Offering 500 Coronavirus Tests a Day Starting Friday, April 10, 2020 at Daytona International Speedway

Overall, the news that AdventHealth will begin offering 500 tests per day at Daytona International Speedway tomorrow is good compared to 250 at Orange County’s testing site (they’ve added a 2nd site at UCF Parking Garage A with 250 a day recently).

Register and learn more here (do it now if you want a test—time slots are filling up quickly). You must have symptoms:

However, so far in Volusia County only 1,980 people have been tested. There are 553,000 people in Volusia County. That’s only 0.36% of the population.

To get tested you need to have symptoms, which means you’ve already been spreading the virus for 2–14 days.

This is why social distancing and staying home whenever possible is so important. We have fewer than 200 cases in Volusia County now. Once this Daytona test site starts tomorrow, you can expect that number to increase drastically.
