Get Data. Get Tested. Get Help.
You can now get a diagnostic test (PCB), rapid-result test (antigen), and antibody test in Florida from licensed providers.
To learn more about the different kinds of tests available, click here.
Taking back control starts with getting tested. We’ve built an application to help you search for the testing centers closest to you by your address, allowing you to search by test facility type, type of test (antibody or diagnostic), whether or not drive-thru testing is available, and whether or not you need a referral.
Testing facility data is provided by URISA’s GISCorps. Providers can submit data about their testing facilities here. GISCorps also publishes two third-party testing site locators for out-of-state residents which you can access here and here.
We are working on compiling as much local data as we can about food banks, food delivery and summer meals, child care services, elder services and assistance, and more.

Hurricane Season in Florida during Coronavirus
How Florida handles a hurricane landfall during the COVID-19 pandemic will be the difference between an inevitable slight spike in cases, and a dual-catastrophe.
Special needs shelters should be taking extra precautions – accepting fewer residents, increasing staffing, and enforcing strict policies on social distancing, masks and sanitizing facilities before, during and after an event.
Communities will play a major role this year in helping the most vulnerable of us, more so than in any year past.
It’s up to YOU to report on facility conditions, available shelter space, whether or not shelters are following or enforcing COVID safety protocols, which hotels have available rooms and whether or not they are enforcing COVID precautions, and much more.
We accept information by communities, for communities.
