Vero Beach, FL, September 7, 2021–A new drive-thru COVID-19 rapid antigen testing location, exclusively for SDIRC students and staff members who are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, has opened at the Indian River County Fairgrounds. In partnership with our local Department of Health, this testing location will be available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Appointments are mandatory and can be made by calling 772-794-7411. Appointment times are limited. A parent or guardian must accompany their child to the testing location and bring their student identification card. SDIRC employees must bring their SDIRC identification card. Students and employees should arrive at the testing site and remain in their vehicles to receive a rapid antigen test from a Health Department staff member. Those who are tested must remain on premises for approximately 20 minutes to receive test results.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. David K. Moore, stated, “I am grateful to our local Department of Health for stepping in to provide rapid testing to our SDIRC family. Without this testing location, many of our students and employees do not have an easy-access rapid testing location available to them. Opening this testing site will save extra frustration, time, and money for our students and staff members who require a test. We will always prioritize the health and safety of our students and staff members and are proud to work with our local medical professionals to do so.”
