JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After closing for the holiday, COVID-19 testing and vaccine sites will reopen on Monday in Duval County.
The sites are reopening as COVID-19 cases are surging across the state.
The previous single-day highest number of cases was in late August, during the height of the delta variant wave in Florida, when 27,802 cases were reported.
After the holidays, the number of cases could go up even more and hospitals could become loaded with COVID-19 patients.
In other parts of the state, Floridians hoping to get COVID-19 tests waited in long lines, sometimes for hours, on Sunday, the day after many had gathered with friends and relatives for Christmas.
The following sites will reopen Monday, Dec. 27 in Duval County:
- Clanzel T. Brown Community Center
- Lane Wiley Community Center - open 9 a.m.
- Emmett Reed Community Center
- Cuba Hunter Community Center
- Telescope Health - open 7 a.m.
