Coronavirus testing has increased significantly in recent weeks in Coral Springs and across Florida as more people sought testing because they were sick or had concerns over the rise in infection rates.
This week, Coral Springs is expected to set up a text app to make it more convenient to wait for testing at Mullins Hall. The app will allow people to sign in with their phones at the testing site and get alerted when their turn comes up in line. Read more here.
The city also announced in late June that Mullins Park is no longer taking appointments for testing due to the growing demand. Read more here.
