Non-profit health center ‘FoundCare’ started a coronavirus drive-through testing site in the center’s parking lot in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Due to high demand and limited slots for appointments, the center initiated the drive-through tests, which do not include sitting in the same room with dozens of other possibly-infected people.

“We’re not trying to be a hero, but the need existed and we just kind of said ‘Ok, let’s give it a shot.’ I can tell you that we feel a bit overwhelmed, this was a first day of trial for us,” Yolette Bonnet, CEO of FoundCare said.
