Updated Hours for No Cost COVID-19 Testing with Curative for Monroe County at Bernstein Park
[Monroe County, Fla.] —COVID-19 testing startup Curative is offering walk-up testing at Bernstein Park in Stock Island on weekdays and Founders Parks in Islamorada daily from 8AM-6PM, with more than 500 tests per day available to the public. Curative offers an oral-fluid swab testing—an alternative method to nasopharyngeal swabs in testing for COVID-19. The observed and directed self-collected oral fluid swab involves having the person cough first, which releases virus from the upper and lower respiratory tract. The virus is then caught in the saliva. The patient then swabs the inside of their cheeks and the roofs of their mouths. Once complete, the patient seals their test within a secure container and returns it to a medical professional to be administered in the lab. Results are sent to patients via SMS text or email. Testing is currently available by walk-up or appointment. Appointments are available at www.curative.com.
