On Thursday, Disney cast members were able to be tested for COVID-19 at no charge at the Maingate Complex in Osceola County. Today that same location is available to the public for testing.
Disney World notified the labor union, Actors’ Equity Association, which represents 750 performers at the theme park and more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers nationwide, that it will provide a free COVID-19 testing site for Florida residents, including Disney World employees and their immediate family members. Here are the currently listed hours:
- Friday, 14th August: 7:00am to 4:00pm
- Saturday, 15th August: 7:00am to 4:00pm
- Sunday, 16th August: 7:00am to 4:00pm
- Monday, 17th August: 7:00am to 4:00pm
The site, located at 3010 Maingate Lane, will provide testing from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Aug. 17.
According to a Disney spokesperson, the Florida Division of Emergency Management will handle operations at the site. Registration is available at DoINeedaCOVIDTest.com, which is operated by eTrueNoth, the lab conducting the testing run by the state of Florida.
