MIAMI GARDENS (CBSMiami) – The Florida Division of Emergency Management has increased the number of coronavirus tests per day at Hard Rock Stadium.

The site will now test up to 750 per day. Up until Wednesday, testing had been capped at 400 per day.

“This is good news because the demand is so high, the last thing we want is people to come out and not be able to get tested,” said spokesman Mike Jachles.

Testing begins daily at 9 a.m.

Jachles said health care workers perform close to 80 exams per hour at the site. He added that there were a number of factors involved before the state was able to increase site capacity.

“The Division of Emergency Management was able to get additional resources and it is not just the test collection kits, we have to have the personal protection equipment for the folks at the site who are doing the screening and test collection. So there are a number of factors involved, but we are confident now,“ he said.

The site initially was testing only seniors showing symptoms and first responders. Last Monday, age restrictions for the site were lifted. However, those wanting to be tested must have symptoms or need to have been around someone who has coronavirus. No appointment is needed.

“I think they should have more sites like this so that a lot more people can get tested,” said Brandon Matthews.

If you’re thinking about going to the Hard Rock Stadium site, plan to get there early, have a full tank of gas and go to the bathroom before going because you are not allowed to get out of your car.

You must stay in your car. No mopeds, scooters, or motorcycles allowed. You must bring a valid ID.
