To accommodate the influx of traffic and demand for COVID-19 testing, the COVID-19 testing site at Intergenerational Center located at 1590 9th Street (Oslo Road) will be closed tomorrow, January 6, 2022, to move to a new site. 

The Florida Department of Health in Indian River County, in partnership with the Indian River County Board of County Commissioners, will move its Curative COVID-19 drive-thru testing site from the Intergenerational (IG) Recreation Center to the Indian River County Fairgrounds, beginning Friday, January 7, 2022.

The drive-thru testing site will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday, at the new Fairgrounds site. To prepare for this site change, testing will not be available through Curative on Thursday, January 6, 2022.

Those individuals requiring a COVID-19 test must enter the Fairgrounds from the 77th Street entrance and follow the assigned traffic pattern to obtain their test.

The tests are no cost to patients, and appointments are strongly recommended. To schedule an appointment, visit this link. Individuals who would like to receive a COVID-19 test should bring a form of identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.) and wear a face mask.

The Indian River County Fairgrounds is located at 7955 58th Avenue in Vero Beach.
